And defend thy golden name.

And thy calm and stately grace 
Herald thine immortal glory.

Sacred is thy marble height, 
Glorious thy spirit reaching 
Ever upward to the light.

TO THE STUDENTS OF 

ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE: 

On behalf of the Office of Student Affairs, I would like to welcome you to 
Armstrong State College. 

This year promises to bring excitement and challenge to both new and 
returning students. Much of this excitement is due to the fact that in 1968 
Armstrong State College will graduate its first senior class. 

Along with a new campus, you will find new faculty, new curricula, new 
social and cultural programs, and a new spirit of growth and optimism. 

You are invited to become an active and contributing member of this com- 
munity. The degree to which your life is enriched by this experience will depend 
upon your willingness to respond to the challenges that-are provided. 

Best wishes for a most successful and rewarding year. 

Sincerely, 

JAMES T. ROGERS 
Dean of Student Affairs

HISTORICAL SKETCH 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, °s Armstrong Junior 

ollege. The College was originally housed in the Armstrong home, a gift from 

he family of George F. Armstrong. Over the years, five additional buildings 

vere acquired in the neighborhood of Forsyth Park to complete the physical 

alant. 

On January ] t 1959, the college became a two-year unit of the University 
System of Georgia, and three years later, the Mills Bee Lane Foundation pur- 
chased a 200-acre site on Abercorn extension to house a new campus. This 
new campus, with its seven buildings, was first occupied during the winter of 
1965- 

In 1964, Armstrong State College became a four-year institution. The 
college community during the 1967—68 school year will consist of approximately 
1,750 students and 75 faculty members, 40 per cent of whom possess the Ph. D 
degree. The first degrees will be conferred in June, 1 968-

DALE L. PRICE 



STUDENTS: 

Welcome to the new and exciting experiences that await you at Armstrong 
State College. 

This should be one of the most challenging and meaningful times of your 
life. It will be, however, only if you take advantage of the myriad opportunities 
which are afforded you. 

Some of your opportunities for growth will be entirely academic, presented 
in an academic setting, and some will confront you when you least expect them 
as co-curricular activities. Be alert and use these opportunities to your best 
advantage. 

College is a time and place for new thoughts, activity, and growrh. May 
you have your share of each. 

Sincerely, 

DALE L. PRICE 

Director of Student Activities

/. ACADEMIC INFORMATION 

The following represents a summary of academic information provided in 
the College Catalog. This information is particularly pertinent to your first 
year at Armstrong State College- It is not intended to be complete and should 
not be relied upon as a final authority for information affecting your standing 
in college. If in doubt, see the College Bulletin or the proper administrative 
official. 

PROGRAMS OF STUDY 

At present the following degrees and majors are offered at Armstrong 
State College: 

Bachelor of Arts Degree with majors in history, English and music; 

Bachelor of Science Degree with majors in biology, chemistry and mathe- 
matics; 

Bachelor of Business Administration with majors in accounting, manage- 
ment and economics; 

(Each of these degrees may be taken with an education program leading 
to certification for secondary school teachers.) 

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education; 

Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology; 

Associate in Arts Degree; preparation for higher degrees or professions. 

Associate in Arts Degree in Nursing. 

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Students who are in need of academic advisement and who have decided 
on a major should consult the head of the department in which they plan to 
concentrate. 

COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE 

Qualified counselors are located in the Office of Student Personnel to give 
assistance to students who are experiencing difficulties relating to academic 
work, personal problems, vocational goals, or transition to college. Students are 
encouraged to take advantage of this service whenever necessary. 

COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of quarter hours in 
which he is enrolled. For example, a student enrolled in a 5-hour course would 
meet this class one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. Evening 
classes and classes with labs would vary slightly from this pattern. 

The average student load is 16—17 hours per quarter. As a general rule, 
students are expected to spend two hours in study K>r every hour in class. A 
student taking an average load would be expected to devote a minimum of 48 
hours per week to class sessions and to his preparation therefor. 

14 



Permission to enroll for more than 17 quarter hours will be granted by the 
egistrar to a student 

a) with an average grade of "B" for the preceding quarter, or 

b) in an engineering program, or 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the two quarters prior to graduation. 
No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quarter hours in any 

ine quarter. 

Exceptions to these limitations may be made only by the Dean of the Col- 
ge. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a maximum of 11 
ours unless he has better than a "B" average in the last quarter for which 
rades are available. 



CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect of a 

sljdent's attendance on his grades in a course is left entirely to the discretion 

f the instructor. 
A student is responsible for knowing everything that is announced, discus- 

ed, or lectured upon in class as well as for mastering all assigned reading; he 

s also responsible for turning in on time all assignments and tests, including 

ecitation and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet these responsibilities 

s to attend classes regularly. An instructor may drop a student from any class 

vith a grade of "WF" if he thinks that excessive absence prevents that student 

from satisfactorily fulfilling his responsibilities. If such excessive absence is 

he result of prolonged illness, death in the family, college business, or religious 

lolidays, the withdrawal grade, will be either "W" or "WF" depending on the 

student's status at the time he was dropped. . Each instructor will be responsible 

for Informing his classes on their meeting what constitutes excessive absence 

n the particular class. Each student is responsible for knowing the attendance 

egulation in his class and for complying with it.

man, and William Larrimore are

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student has registered, a change in classes will be not made unless 
some legitimate reason is given. In no case will a change be made because a 
student happens to prefer one instructor over another. If changes are necessary, 
a student must have the written approval of an official in the Student Personnel 
Office. A charge of $2 per course will be made for any change after registration 
unless the change is initiated by the college. This fee is not refundable and i« 
payable to the Business Office. 

DROPPING COURSES 

Students desiring to drop a course after the quarter has begun must obtain c 
Drop-Add Notice in the Student Personnel Office. The notice must be signed b> 
the professor of the course being dropped. 

A student dropping a course not more than seven school days after the clas. 
begins will automatically receive a "W" upon withdrawing from the course 

After seven days the grade received will depend on the student's status ir 
class at the time of withdrawal. 



WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 



Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from college must begin th< 
process in the Student Personnel Office. A formal withdrawal is required tc 
insure that the student is eligible to return to Armstrong State College at < 
future date. Any refund to which a student is entitled will be considered from th< 
date which appears on the withdrawal form. 



AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who apply to audit courses will not be required to take the Scholast- 
ic Aptitude Test, but must meet all other requirements for admission and pay al 
regular fees. 

A special form for permission to audit courses may be obtained from the 
Admissions Office. 

Students enrolled on a full-time, credit basis and desiring to change frorr 
credit status to audit status must have the permission of the instructor. Nc 
change of this nature may be made after the seventh class meeting. 

GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. Students doing unsatis- 
factory work (D-F) will receive a mid-term report. 

Armstrong State College uses the following system of grading: 
Numerical Span Grade Honor Points 

95-100 A 4 4.5 

90-94 A 4.0 

16 



85-89 B 4 3.5 

80-84 B 3.0 

75-79 C 4 2.5 

70-74 C 2.0 

65-69 D4 1.5 

60-64 D 1 .0 

Below 60 F 

I -Incomplete (must be removed by mid-term of succeeding quarter or 
will automatically become an "F") . 

W-Withdraw with no grade. 

WF_Withdrew Failing 

NC-No credit 
A student's quarterly honor point average is computed by dividing the number 
}f hours for which he is enrolled (attempted hours) into the total honor points 
-eceived. W's are excluded from this computation, but WF's and F's are consider- 
ed. A student's overall average is computed by dividing the total hours attempted 
nto the total honor points earned while enrolled. 

When a course is repeated at Armstrong State College, the grade last receiv- 
ed replaces all previous grades in this course. 

Example: 

Courses for Quarter Hours Final Grade Honor Pts. Earned 

Eng.— 101 5 C (2.0) 10.00(5x2.0) 

Hist. 114 - 5 B (3.0) 15.00 (5x3.0) 

Math 101 5 D (1.0) 5.00 (5x1.0) 

P. E. Ill - 1 B (3.0) 3.00 (1x3.0) 

Total 16 Total 33.00 

33 r 16 = 2.06 (quarterly grade point average) 



CHANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's Otfice, they become 
final. Students should not request that changes be made once they have been 
officially recorded in that office. 

SPECIAL REGULATIONS GOVERNING REGISTRATION 

|. The Registrar provides detailed instructions for registration. Each student, 
assisted by his adviser, is responsible for completing all forms properly and 
paying all fees on the day of registration. 

2. All students who are enrolled for ten quarter hours or more on the day 
schedule and who are candidates for degrees are required to take six physical 
education courses, one in each quarter of the freshman and sophomore years with 
the sequence of 111, 112, 1 13 in the freshman year. 

17

anyone enrolled primarily in evening classes. 

3. Once a student is enrolled in a course, he may drop or change the cours« 
only on the days designated for course changes. (See CHANGE OF CLASS am 
WITHDRAWAL sections of this handbook.) 

4- Students are responsible for keeping an accurate record of courses com 
pleted. Additional credit is not allowed for repeated courses. If a course is 
failed and is repeated at Armstrong State College the grade last received is the 
only one considered in the figuring of the overall grade point average. 

5. A student who does not registerduring the regular registration period will 
be charged a late registration fee. No student will be permitted to register after 
the last day scheduled for late registration. 

6. On registration day, students who have not been pre-advised shoulc 
contact one of the available advisers prior to proceeding with registration.

LIBRARY 

The LaneLibrary of Armstrong State College is a modern two-story handsome- 
y equipped building which is completely air-conditioned. There is an attractively 
urnished periodical and newspaper room on the first floor. Individual carrel desks 
ire available on both floors. Group study rooms (for use by assignment only) are 
located on the second floor. 

Hours: The library is open from 8 A.M. until 9 P.M. Monday through Thursday; 
: riday from 8 A.M. until 5 P-M. and from 2 P.M. until 6 P.M. on Sunday. The 
ibrary is closed on New Year's Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Friday 
jnd Saturday after, and on Christmas Day. Other variations or changes, including 
Intersessions will be posted in the foyer of the library. 

Resources: The library collection numbers approximately 36,000 volumes, 
vith additional pamphlets and government documents. The library receives over 
tOO periodicals and 8 newspapers. The collection also includes phonograph 
ecords and tapes which are available for circulation. 

In the library you will find materials for every subject, every purpose, and 
5very taste. All the books have been carefully chosen for the work and interests 
of the students and faculty. 

Circulation Policies: 

1. Library Card. The I. D. card, issued to you at registration and punched 
'or the current quarter, must be presented to the library to obtain a Library Card. 

19 



It is necessary that you present this card each time you wish to check out anyi 
materials. No loans will be made without your Library Card. 

2. Reference books and periodicals (whether bound or unbound) are for us« 
only within the library. 

3. All books (except Reserve books) may be borrowed for two weeks. Un!?s< 
another borrower is waiting for a book, it may be renewed one time. To renew c 
book, it must be brought to the charging desk from which you borrowed it. 4 
maximum of five books may be charged to a person at any given time. 

4- Reserve books are so designated at the request of an instructor whc 
wishes to assign them to his classes as supplementary or required reading and 
they are kept behind the charging desk. Reserve books are circulated for rn 
length of time recommer ded by the instructor. 

Fines: For general books the overdue fine for late returns is five cents 

per day. For seven-day materials (recordings, tapes, one-week reserve books, and 
pamphlets) the fine is ten cents per day. The fine for reserve books is twenty-five 
cents a day. Overnight reserve books carry a fine of twenty-five cents for the 
first hour and ten cents for each additional hour overdue - up to the maximum of 
one dollar per day for each book. Fines are not charged to raise funds for the 
library. Fines are imposed as a means of encouraging the prompt return of library 
materials so that as many people as possible may benefit from them. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library material will be charged the price 
of the item plus 20% of the value to cover the cost of correcting the records and 
processing a replacement copy. If the book is found within the school year, a 
refund will be made of the price of the book, providing the person is still a 
student at the time. No refund will be made of the processing charge. If a student 
should lose a book, he should report this fact immediately so that excessive 
fines do not accumulate. 

Students who owe fines to the library or who have overdue books will not be 
permitted to register for the next quarter or to have transcripts of records issued 
until their accounts have been cleared. Also, semester grades will be withhe'.! 
if the library record of the student is not clear. 

Conduct: 

1. Silence. The Library does not function as a place to visit with your 
friends. The Library is intended for purposes of reading, serious study and re- 
search. Help maintain quiet within the building as a courtesy to the other stu- 
dents. 

2. No Smoking. Smoking is not permitted in any area of the library except the 
foyer. 

3. Dress. Ladies are not permitted to wear shorts or slacks in the library. 
This requlation applies to evenings and Sundays as well as to weekdays. 

4. Students who fail to maintain suitable standards of conduct, or who fail

building and will not be readmitted without special permission.

HONOR SYSTEM 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides all members of the 
student body with an opportunity to participate in self government. The accom- 
anying responsibilities are outlined below. 

The Honor System, written by a joint committee of faculty and students, 
eceived an overwhelming endorsement by both faculty and students during the 
Winter Quarter, 1965- 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

I. All students must agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the Honor 
System. A student will not be accepted at Armstrong State College unless he 
signs the following statement at the time of his first registration: 

"I have read the regulations governing the Honor System at Armstrong State 
College, and I understand that as a student at Armstrong, I must comply with all 
of these requirements." This statement and all rules and regulations governing 
the Honor System will be printed in the official Bulletin and the Student Handbook. 
The statement will also be printed on the application form for admission to be 
signed by the student before admission to the college. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council to conduct an extensive 
orientation program at thebeginning ofeach quarter for all newly entering students 
to explain fully the requirements of the Honor System and to allow full discussion 
of these regulations. 

II. The following will be considered violations of the Honor Code: 

A. Academic dishonesty of any kind (giving or receiving any unauthoriz- 
ed help on any assignment, test or paper. At the beginning of each quarter it 
shall be the responsibility of each teacher to make clear what shall be considered 
unauthorized help in his course.) 

B. Stealing only when related to cheating. 

C. Lying before the Honor Council. 

D. Failure to report a known offense. (Lying or stealing in any other 
cases will be considered disciplinary, not Honor, matters.) 

III. Ways of reporting a violation of the Honor Code: 

A. Self-reporting: A student who has broken the Honor Code should report 
limself to a member of the Honor Council. 

B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of a violation of the 
Honor Code must report the matter. This may be done in one of two ways: 

1. He may tell the person thought to be guilty to report himself to a mem- 
ber of the Honor Council no later than the end of the next school day. After this 
designated time the person who is aware of the violation must inform a member 
of the Honor Council so that the Honor Council may contact the accused person 
if he has not already reported himself. 

2. He may report the suspected violation directly to a member of the Honor 
Council without informing the accused. 

21 



IV. The Honor Council will be composed of nine students. 

A. Selection shall be made by the President, Vice-President and Secretary 1 
of the Student Body, the President and Secretary of the Honor Council, together 
with three faculty members appointed by the President of the college. Selection 
shall be based on the followina requirements: 

1. High moral principles and unquestioned academic integrity in all their 
relations to fellow students, faculty, and admini strati ve officials. 

2. A minimum of C + for the preceding quarter and an over-all average of 

c+. 

Any student not in good standing with the college in academic or dis- 
ciplinary matters is ineligible to serve on the Honor Council. 

Any member of the Honor Council who falls below these requirements 
will be ineligible to continue his term of service. A replacement will not be 
selected, however, unless the total number of students on the Honor Council falls 
below seven. 

B. The selection committee shall submit a questionnaire to those students 
who meet these requirements. On the basis of the questionnaires the committee 
has the power to appoint three seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores to 
serve on the Honor Council. At least three committee members shall be women 
and at least three shall be men. This distribution may be altered when deemed 
best by the selection committee. The appointments shall be raade by the second 
Tuesday in March, and the Council shall assume its duties on April 1. 

C. The Honor Council shall elect one of its members to serve as President 
and one as Secretary. The President shall preside at all meetings and trials, and 
the Secretary shall maintain a written record of all proceedings. 

D. During summer school, any member of the Honor Council who is attending 
summer classes will serve on the Council for the summer together with other 
students appointed by the Council and the Dean of Student Affairs. 

V. The Honor Council shall formulate its own bylaws and procedure. 

A. An Honor Council meeting shall be called by the President of the Council 
to examine a reported violation as soon as possible after such a report. When 
possible the meeting of the Council will be held within a week of the violation. 

B. At the meeting the Honor Council will hear the accusation, the testimony 
of any witnesses, and any defense the accused may wish to present. 

C. The accused will have the right to hear all witnesses and all evidence 
brought before the Honor Council. 

D. Written notification of the specific charges which, if approved, shall be 
made grounds for suspension or dismissal from a class. 

E. The accused will be considered innocent until proved guilty. 

F. Every trial shall be conducted by a Council of at least six members, 
including the President. In the absence of the President, the senior justice shall 
preside. 

G. The Secretary will keep minutes of all meetings. All official testimony 
will be tape recorded, provided that the recording devices are under the control 
of the Council.

d voting will be necessary for the conviction of the accused. The Council, in 
fie event of a verdict of guilty, shall determine the penalty by majority vote.

VI. Post-trial Procedure. 

A. Immediately upon conclusion of the trial, the accused shall be notified of 
ie findings and of the recommendation that the Council will make to the Presi-

eriod of three weeks or at the request of the professor in whose course the 
lleged violation occurred.

POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in existence for the purpose of providing a place 
and climate for the orderly process of learning. Therefore, the following, which 
conforms to the policy of the University System of Georgia relative to the use 
of campuses, constitutes Armstrong State College's policy for the use of the 
facilities and/or campus. 

1. Armstrong State College is state property and is thereby open to any 
citizen desiring to visit. The conduct of visitors is expected to conform with 
regular college policies. 

2. Approved and recognized college student and faculty organizations 
may promote any program with any featured speaker provided the program is 
approved by the institution in accordance with stated college policy. (see POLICY 
REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF 
OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS.) 

3- The facilities and campus may not be made available for general 
partisan political activities. 

4- The facilities and campus may not be used by outside groups and 
non-student groups except in conjunction with Item 2 above. 

5- No activity will be permitted which interferes with the normal and 
orderly educational functions of this college. 

32 



POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE 
GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Armstrong State College encourages the formation of clubs and organizations 
bmong the students and faculty. In the interest of developing educational, cultural 
and recreational activities, the college expects to cooperate fully with recognized 
college groups, clubs or organizations as these seek to provide programs for their 
Tiembers. Whenever possible, Armstrong State College will permit these college- 
elated groups to use the physical facilities. 

The college recognizes that the general programs of groups, clubs and 
brganizations fall into three categories, namely, (1) business meetings, (2) 
social or recreational activities, and (3) programs which have a clear educational 
burpose germane to the nature of the organization. 

In those cases where the meetings involve members of the college family, 
either students or faculty, no specific approval or request is necessary other 
than the approval of the college sponsor of the club. 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs, and activities by all 

college approved groups, it does have the responsibility to insure that public 

aw and order will be maintained and that the policies of the Board of Regents 

will be observed. Therefore, the college reserves the right to approve outside 

guests who appear on a program on the campus. 

Consequently, where the program is to feature an individual or group of 
individuals who are not members of the Armstrong State College official family, 
the president of the club or organization, with the approval of the sponsor, must 
register, not later than ten (10) days before the program is to take place, with the 
Dean of Student Affairs the proposed program and the specific individual or group 
of individuals participating. 

STATEMENT OF STUDENT ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE 
CONCERNING ELIGIBILITY FOR STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

A student is eligible to participate in the student activity program if he is 
registered for at least ten hours of course work. Students on scholastic or dis- 
ciplinary probation will not be considered eligible to participate.

lar activities of the college.

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, as Armstrong Junior 
College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savannah to meet a long felt 
need for a college in the community. The College was housed in the Armstrong 
Building, a gift to the city from the family of George F. Armstrong, and over the 
years built or acquired five more buildings in the neighborhood of Forsyth Park 
and Monterey Square. 

The College, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became a two=year unit of 
the University System of Georgia on January 1, 1959, under the control of the 
Regents of the University System. 

In 1962, the Mills Bee Lane Foundation purchased a new campus site of 
over 200 acres, selected by the Regents. The new campus, with seven new 
buildings, was occupied in December, 1965 = 

In 1964, the Regents conferred upon Armstrong the status of a four-year 
college, with the right to offer the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of 
Business Administration. The College now offers fourteen major programs 
leading to these degrees, and, in addition, the two year Associate Degree in 
Nursing, in Dental Hygiene, and in Police Administration. 

The College community includes about 2100 students and 84 full-time 
faculty members. 

Armstrong State College retained its accreditation as a junior college by 
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools when it became a four=year 
college. In the process of following the procedure required by the Association 
for accreditation as a senior institution, Armstrong State College expects to be 
accredited as a senior institution in the fall of 1968, with accreditation retro- 
active to January 1, 1968.

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Students who are in need of academic advisement and who have decided

concentrate 

COUNSELING ANO GUIDANCE 

Qualified counselors are located in the Office of Student Personnel to give 
assistance to students who are experiencing difficulties relating to academic 
work, personal problems, vocational goals, or transition to college. Students are 
encouraged to take advantage of this service whenever necessary. 

COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of quarter hours in 
which he is enrolled. For example, a student enrolled in a 5-hour course woulc 
meet this class one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. Evening 
classes and classes with labs would vary slightly from this pattern 

The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. As a general rule, 
students are expected to spend two hours in study for every hour in class. A 
student taking an average load would be expected to devote a minimum of 4£ 
hours per week to class sessions and to his preparation therefor. 

Permission to enroll for more than 17 quarter hours will be granted by the 
Registrar to a student 

a) with an average grade of "B" for the preceding quarter, or 

14 



b) in an engineering program, or 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the two quarters prior to graduation. 
No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quarter hours in any 

ne quarter. 

Fxceptions to these limitations may be made only by the Dean of the Col- 
ege. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a maximum of 11 
ours unless he has better than a "B" average in the last quarter for which 
rades are available. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect of a 

s<jdent's attendance on his grades in a course is left entirely to the discretion 

of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is announced, discus- 

d, or lectured upon in class as well as for mastering all assigned reading; he 

also responsible for turning in on time all assignments and tests, including 

?citation and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet these responsibilities 

s to attend classes regularly. An instructor may drop a student from any class 

• i th a grade of "WF" if he thinks that excessive absence prevents that student 

rom satisfactorily fulfilling his responsibilities. If such excessive absence is 

he result of prolonged illness, death in the family, college business, or religious 

olidays, the withdrawal grade, will be either "W" or "WF" depending on the 

tudent's status at the time he was dropped. . Each instructor will be responsible 

or informing his classes on their meeting what constitutes excessive absence 

n the particular class. Each student is responsible for knowing the attendance 

egulation in his class and for complying with it. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student has registered, a change in classes will not be made unless 
pme legitimate reason is given. In no case will a change be made because a 
tudent happens to prefer one instructor over another. If changes are necessary, 
student must have the written approval of an official in the Student Personnel 
ffice. A charge of $2 per course will be made for any change after registration 
nless the change is initiated by the college. This fee is not refundable and is 
ayable to the Business Office. 

DROPPING COURSES 

A student desiring to drop a course after the quarter has begun must obtain 
Drop-Add Notice in the Student Personnel Office. The notice must be signed 
y the instructor of the course being dropped and returned to the Registrar's 
ffice. 

A student who drops a course not more than seven school days after the 
lass begins will receive the grade of "W". A student who drops a course after 
le first seven days and before the last eight school days will receive a grade 
f "W" or "7F", depending on his status when he dropped. A student may not 
Dluntarily drop a course during the last eight school days of a quarter.

POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in exisience for the purpose of providing a place 
nd climate for the orderly process of learning. Therefore, the toliowing, which 
ontorms +o the policy of the University System of Georgia relative to the use 
I campuses, constitutes Armstrong State College's policy for the use of the 
iciiities and or campus. 

1. Armstrong State College is state property and is thereby open to any 
itizen desiring to visit. The conduct of visitors is expected to conform with 
>guiar coliege policies. 

2 Approved and recognized coiiege student and faculty organizations 
ay promote any program with any featured speaker provided the program is 
pproved by the institution in accordance with stated coiiege policy, (see POLICY 
EGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF 
)FFIC!AL ORGANIZATIONS) 

3- The facilities and campus may not be made available for general 
artisan political activities. 

4- The facilities and campus may not be used by outside croups and 
on-studenr groups except in conjunction with Item 2 above. 

5- No activity wiii be permitted which interferes with ihe normal and 
'derly educational functions of this college. 

POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE 
GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Armstrong State College encourages the formation of clubs and organizations 
mong the students and faculty. In the interest of developing educational, cultural 
nd recreational activities, the college expects to cooperate fully with recognized 
ollege groups, clubs or organizations as these seek to provide programs for their 
lembers. Whenever possible, Armstrong State College will permit these college- 
slated groups to use the physical facilities. 

The college recognizes that the general programs of groups, clubs and 
rganizations fall into three categories, namely, (1) business meetings, (2) 
ocial or recreational activities, and (3) programs which have a clear educational 
urpose gemane to the nature of the organization. 

31 



In those cases where the meetings involve members of the college family 
either students or faculty, no specific approval or request is necessary oth< 
than the approval of the college sponsor of the club. 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs, and activities by al 
college approved groups, it does have the responsibility to insure that public 
law and order will be maintained and that the policies of the Board of Regent* 
will be observed. Therefore, the college reserves the right to approve outsidc- 
guests who appear on a program on the campus. 

Consequently, where the program is to feature an individual or group o 
individuals who are not members of the Armstrong State College official family 
the president of the club or organization, with the approval of the sponsor, mus 
register, not later than ten (10) days before the program is to take place, with the 
Dean of Student Affairs the proposed program and the specific individual or group 
of individuals participating. 

POLICY ON STUDENT OFF-CAMPUS MEETING HOUSES 

The Student Activities Committee proposes the following policy in respec 
to the establishment and governance of off-campus housing of fraternities, sorori 
ties, and other student organizations: 

I. Conduct: The Purview of the Student Activities Committee 

Since the Committee recognizes college students as responsible citizen' 
of their wider communities and as respected representatives of the College, i 
therefore expects their conduct in off-campus activities to comply with thii 
trust. The Committee is thus loathe to frame a set of rules and regulations expli 
citly setting forth policy adequately encompassed already by the laws of ou 
nation, state, county, and city for the guidance of all citizens. Consequently, th 
Committee feels the following statements, in respect to the conduct of studen 
organizations in off-campus houses, should be sufficient. 

A. Alleged violations of the law; involvement in civil suit; or any action 
which might be construed as violations of criminal statues or which might b< 
actionable in civil suit; by the members of an organization while representing th< 
organization in any capacity, shall constitute sufficient ground for the Committe 
to actively intervene in order to ascertain for itself the facts of the case. In m 
event is such an intervention to be taken as a prejudgment of student wrongdoim 
by the Committee. Students should recognize, however, that any involvement o 
a College-sponsored organization in the criminal or civil courts, or any action tha 
might lead to such a situation, will inevitably reflect on the reputation and on th< 
policies of the College. In such event, the College is, ipso facto , an intereste< 

P ar y * B. Officers or members of an organization appearing before the Studen 
Activities Committee, or any duly constituted faculty or administrative body o 
the College, to respond to allegations of wrongdoing which, in the event of ai 
affirmative finding, might constitute grounds for disciplinary action shall hav 
secured to them thosejprocedural guarantees promulgated by the College for th 
governance of College bodies investigating the wrongdoing of individual colleg 
students. 

II. Conduct: The Responsibilities of College-Affiliated Organizations Havin 
Off-Campus Houses 

Applicant organizations will recognize the time honored principle that the 
obverse side of freedom is responsibility. We expect members of these organiza 

32 



ions to act as responsible citizens. For the preservation of their good citizen 
tanding, the Committee delegates first and primary responsibility to the organi- 
ions themselves. To this end we promulgate the following guidelines: 

A. Applicant organizations must show evidence to the Committee that 
ley have established adequate machinery for dealing with possible internal 
isciplinary problems. 

B. Officers and members of organizations have the obligation to bring to 
le attention of the relevant College officials any situations which might serious- 
/ compromise the good reputation of the organization and/or the College. Students 
re asked to exercise sound judgment in recognizing for themselves when situa- 
ons which may develop are of such a serious nature that they cannot be adjudi- 
ated properly within the mechanisms of the organization itself. 

C. The faculty sponsor or an adult approved by the Office of Student 
ffairs shall be present at all meetings and social functions of the organization. 
hen social functions are open to the student body, alumni, etc., the organization 
ill consult with the Office of Student Affairs for advice on whether supervision 
y police officers is necessary. 

D. Hazing, for any reason, shall be prohibited as an aspect of organiza- 
on activity. 

E. Organizations shall make available to the Student Activities Commit- 
*e for permanent filing an updated copy of their full house rules. 

III. Financial Responsibility 

An applicant organization must demonstrate financial competence to meet the 
^current obligations of maintaining the premises they occupy. The organization 
ust in addition show competence to meet a reasonable amount of emergency 
nancial obligations usually attendant on householding. To these ends the Com- 
ittee promulgates the following guidelines: 

A. Competence to meet financial obligations cannot be projected on the 
isis of expected revenues from membership dues or other sources. In the opinion 

the Committee the only feasible way such warranty of financial responsibility 
an be assured is by having an economically secure individual from the corn- 
unity, or a board made up of such individuals, assume responsibility for all of 
e organizations' obligations. 

B. It is expected that the financial affairs or organizations will be on 
cash or, at most, a regular thirty day billing basis. Decisions by organizations 

enter long-term credit obligations must be submitted to the Committee for 
>proval. 

C. Organizations must have their off-campus premises full and adequate- 
insured for liability.

Tug-of-War - Pioneer Day 



CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS 

Organization Recognition Procedure 

I. Procedures for submitting an applicanc y 

Organizations seeking approval by the student activities committee shoul 
adopt the following procedures: 

A. A finished draft of a proposed constitution should be submitted to each < 
the members of the committee. The draft should embody principles hereinaft* 
set forth, should be redacted in an acceptable form and should be free of gran 
matical, spelling, and typographical errors. 

B. The draft of the constitution should be accompanied by a brief statemer 
incorporating the following: 

1. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of two individuals wh 
may be contacted by members of the committee and who can be responsible fc 
answering questions about the proposed organization and its constitution. 

2. A brief assessment of the interest expressed by potential members i 
the formation of the organization, i. e., how much support you think the organi 
zation, if approved, will get from the student body. 

NOTE: This statement should be made part of the constitution. It shoul 
be drafted on a separate page and attached to the individual copies of the const 
tution submitted. 

38 



II. The form and content of the constitution 

In drawing up a constitution the applicants should bear in mind that the 
function of a constitution is to set forth the general ground rules for the conduct 
of the business of an organization. As it constitutes a fixed reference on perman- 
ent file of these rules, it should be so explicit in those areas which it seeks to 
govern as to leave no doubt as to its meaning, e.g., the titles and general duties 
of the organization's officers and the manner, time and procedures for conducting 
elections. On the other hand, the committee suggests that it would be unwise for 
the constitution to venture into legislative matters best left to the determination 
of easily alterable by-laws which can be passed by an enlarged and more repres= 
entative membership. 

A. The constitution should be framed in outline form. Because important 
changes in the policy and leadership of an organization frequently hinge on 
constitutional interpretation, it is strongly suggested that the constitution be 
framed in outline form for easy reference. For a convenient outline form the 
applicants should consult an acceptable authority such as the MLA Style Book 
)r Kate Turabian's Manuel for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations . 
The committee makes the following suggestions respecting form: 

1. Important and distinct topics such as "elections," "amendments to 
the constitution," etc., should be designated by Roman Numerals and a topic 
heading (e.g., IV Elections). 

2. Distinct sub-topic areas should be treated in separate paragraphs 
which may, but need not necessarily, be designated by a descending order of 
outline. 

3. The purposes of the committee in making these suggestions as to 
form should not be thought of as academic arbitrariness. It is sometimes important 
to an organization to be able to make explicit and exact references to its consti 
tutional document. The form we have suggested is designed to facilitate this kind 
of reference. 

B. There are minimal requirements of the Student Activities Committee as to 
the content of submitted constitutions. Without presuming to proscribe the in- 
clusion of other topics not listed or to dictate the general order of presentation of 
topics, the Student Activities Committee insists that the proposed constitution of 
any applicant organization include explicit provision for the following: 

1. Statement of the purposes of the organization. 

2. Provision for choosing a faculty SDonsor. 

3. Qualifications for membership. 

4. Titles and duties of officers of the organization. 

5. Elections. In regard to elections the Committee feels that it is en- 
cumbent upon the proposed organization to make constitutional provision for the 
following: 

a. Free, open, democratic, and periodic election of officers. 

b. Provision for filling interim vacancies of offices. 
6. Funding and financial responsibility. 

a. The constitution must provide for a clear and distinct delegation 
)f financial responsibility to one or more stipulated officers of the organization. 

b. The constitution must provide for the manner of assessing the 
nembership for dues. 

39 



c. The constitution must provide for an internal audit of the finances of 
the organization to be presented annually for the consideration of its membership. 

7. Meetings 

a. The constitution must provide for a minimal number of annual meetings 
of the membership. 

b. The constitution must provide suitable guarantees that the membership 
will be given advance notice as to the time and place for conducting general 
meetings. 

c. The constitution must provide a means for calling special meetings 
where the situation warrants and for notifying the general membership thereof. 

8. Quorum for conducting business 

9. The Method of passing by-laws 

10. Committees 

11. Amendment of the constitution 

Ml. Responsibilities of applicants in making a constitutional presentation 
Responsibilities of the Student Activities Committee are such that it must 
confine its attention to the consideration of substantive matters. Consequently, 
the Committee cannot be expected to contribute in any way towards putting an 
organization's constitution in proper form. The entire burden of producing a 
constitution in acceptable form rests with the applicant organization. This means 
the constitution, before it will be considered by the Committee, must embody the 
provisions established by the Committee (above ll-B, 1-11), it must be in gram- 
matically acceptable form and it must be corrected for spelling and typographical 
errors. 

Religious Organizations

an actively undergirds the activities attendant to a new academic year. 

We welcome all students, old and new, and we covet for all students the

spirit! 



We are glad you are here.

History Of The College 



Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, as Armst 
Junior College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savannah to i 
a long felt need for a college in the community. The college was house 
the Armstrong Building, a gift to the city from the family of Georg 
Armstrong. Over the years five more buildings were constructed or acqi 
in the neighborhood of Forsyth Park and Monterey Square. 

The College, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became a two-year 
of the University System of Georgia on January 1, 1959, under the coi 
of the Regents of the University System. 

In 1962, the Mills B. Lane Foundation purchased a new campus si 
over 200 acres which had been selected by the Regents. The new carr 
with seven new buildings, was occupied in December, 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong was made a four year institution and bee 
Armstrong State College. The college is fully accredited by the Sout 
Association of Colleges and Schools.

Will thy sons and daughters cherish 
And defend thy golden name.

And thy calm and stately grace 
Herald thine immortal glory.

Alma Mater those before us 
Left thine honor great and strong 
We who follow take their banner 
Raise it with a fighting song! 
Consecrated is thy teaching, 
Sacred is thy marble height, 
Glorious thy spirit reaching 
Ever upward to the light.

BOURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of quarter hours in 
which he is enrolled. For example, a student enrolled in a five hour course 
vould meet this class one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire 
quarter. Evening classes and lab courses would vary slightly from this 
>attern. 

The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. As a general rule, 
tudents should expect to spend two hours in study for every hour in class. 

Permission to enroll for more than 17 quarter hours will be granted by 
:he Registrar to the student: 

a) with an average grade of B for the preceding quarter, or 

b) in an engineering program 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the last two quarters prior to 
graduation 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quarter hours in 
my one quarter. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a maximum of 
1 hours unless he has better than a "B" average in the last quarter for which 
rades are available. 

:LASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect of a 
itudent's attendance on his grades in a course is left entirely to the discretion 
)f the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is announced, 
Jiscussed, or lectured upon in class as well as mastering all assigned reading; 
le is also responsible for turning in on time all assignments and tests, 
ncluding recitation and unannounced quizes. The best way to meet these 
esponsibilities is to attend classes regularly. An instructor may drop a 
itudent from any class with a grade of 'WF' if he thinks that excessive 
ibsence prevents that student from satisfactorily fulfilling his 
esponsibilities. If any excessive absence is the result of prolonged illness, 
Jeath in the family, college business, or religious holidays, the withdrawal 
jrade, will either be 'W or 'WF' depending on the student's status at the 
ime he is dropped. Each instructor will be responsible for informing classes 
>n their meeting what constitutes excessive absence in that particular class. 
Each student is responsible for knowing the attendance regulation in his class 
md for complying with it.

number of hours for which he is enrolled (attempted hours) into the total 
points received. W's are excluded from this computation, but WF's and F'< 
are considered. A student's overall average is computed by dividing the total 
hours attempted into the total honor points earned while enrolled.

Course for quarter Hours Grade Honor pts. earned 

English 101 5 C 10(5x2) 

History 114 5 B 15(5x3) 

Math 101 1 D 5 (5x1) 

P.E. 111 15 B 3(1x3) 

Total 16 33 
33 divided by 16 = (quarterly grade point average) 



HANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's Office, they become 
nal. An "I" grade which has not been removed by the middle of the next 
jarter automatically becomes an "F."

uarter hours attempted will be placed on academic probation: 

Qt. hours attempted at G.P.A. 

Armstrong and elsewhere: Required cumulative:

76-90 1 8 

91-105 i"g 

106-120 1.9 

121-135 and over 2.0 



The academic status of students who have attempted other institutions 
/ill be determined by using only work attempted at Armstrong State College 
i computing the grade point average. 

The minimum gradepoint average required of such students must 
>rrespond to the total quarter hours attempted at Armstrong and elsewhere 
presented in the preceding chart. Any student whose grade point average 
ops below these minimums will be placed on academic probation. 

A student on academic probation must (1) at the completion of the 
Jxt 15 quarter hours, achieve the cumulative grade point average required 
r quarter hours attempted, or (2) at the completion of the next 15 quarter 



13 



hours, achieve at least a "C" (2.0) average for these 15 quarter hours and fo 
each successive 13 quarter hours attempted until he achieves the cumulativi 
grade point average required in the preceding table. 

There will be no minimum number of the academic quarter hour 
required for individuals who are on scholastic probation. 

Failing to meet these requirements, a student will be dismissed from thi 
college for one quarter. A third such academic dismissal will be final.

HONOR CODE 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides all members of

The Honor System, written by a joint committee of faculty and 
dents, received an overwhelming endorsement by both faculty and 
dents during the Winter Quarter, 1965. 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

I. All students must agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the 
nor System. A student shall not be accepted at Armstrong State College 
ess he signs the following statement at the time of his first registration: 

"I have read the regulations governing the Honor System at Armstrong

stimony will be tape recorded, provided that the recording devices are 
ider the control of the Council. 

H. A vote of two-thirds majority of the members of the Honor Council 
esent and voting will be necessary for the conviction of the accused. The 
>uncil / in the event of a verdict of guilty, shall determine the penalty by 
^jority vote. 

I. The vote will be taken by secret ballot. 

VI. Post-trial Procedure. 

A. Immediately upon conclusion of the trial, the accused shall be 
rtified of the findings and of the recommendation that the Council will 
ake to the President of the college. 

B. If the accused is found innocent, he shall be notified of the finding 
d cautioned that the trial may be re-opened for good cause by the Council 
thin a period of three weeks or at the request of the professor in whose 
urse the alleged violation occurred. 

C. If a person is found guilty, the Honor Council will recommend to the 
esident of Armstrong State College one of the following: 

1. Expulsion from the class and denial of credit in the course in 
lien the violation occurred and denial of the position of any elective 
fice. 

2. Suspension from school for any number of quarters (the 
inimum suspension will be for the remainder of the quarter in which the 
Dlation occurs.) 

3. Expulsion from school. 

In cases where the accused is found guilty, the Honor Council will report 
writing its recommendations to the President of the College who will 
ake the final decision. After the President of the College has decided on 
e action to be taken, he will inform, in writing, the accused, the professor 
the class in which the violation occurred, and the accusor of his decision, 
le secretary of the Honor Council will then post an official notice on the 
illetin boards announcing his action without mentioning the name of the 
cused. 

VII. Although the College feels that the above three recommendations 
; appropriate for academic dishonesty, it also recognizes that unique 
cumstances may arise. For such cases a series of appeals is open to the 
nvicted student. He may appeal either the conviction or the punishment or 
th in the following ways: 

A. To the President of Armstrong State College in a letter. 

B. The President's decision may be appealed to the Chancellor of the 
liversity System of Georgia in a letter.

the University System of Georgia in a letter. 

VIM. Each student will be required to write on every written assignment, 
st, or paper a pledge that he has neither given nor received any 
^authorized help on this work. This may be done by writing the word 



21 



"Pledged" followed by the student's signature. 

IX. The Honor System is dependent upon student cooperation an 
support. It is felt that every student wishes the credit for his work to b 
unquestioned and the college he has chosen to be respected. 

X. A revision of the Honor System will require a majority vote of th 
faculty and of the student body.

POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in existence for the purpose of providing 
place and climate for the orderly process of learning. Therefore, th 
following, which conforms to the policy of the University System of Georgi 
relative to the use of campuses, constitutes Armstrong State College's polic 
for the use of the facilities and or campus. 

1. Armstrong State College is state property and is thereby open t 
any citizen desiring to visit. The conduct of visitors is expected to confon 
with regular college policies. 

2. Approved and recognized college student and facult 
organizations may promote any program with any featured speaker provide 
the program is approved by the institution in accordance with stated collec 
policy, (see POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSID 
GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS). 

3. The facilities and campus may not be made available for gener; 
partisan political activities. 

4. The facilities and campus may not be used by outside groups an 
non-student groups except in conjunction with Item 2 above. 

5. No activity will be permitted which interferes with the norm, 
and orderly educational functions of this college. 

POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE 
GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Armstrong State College encourages the formation of clubs an 
organizations among the students and faculty. In the interest of developir 
educational, cultural and recreational activities, the college expects t 
cooperate fully with recognized college groups, clubs or organizations < 
these seek to provide programs for their members. Whenever possiblt 
Armstrong State College will permit these col lege- related groups to use th 
physical facilities. 

The college recognizes that the general programs of groups, clubs an 
organizations fall into three categories, namely, (1) business meetings, (1 
social or recreational activities, and (3) programs which have a co- 
educational purpose germane to the organization. 

In those cases where the meetings involve members of the college famih 
either students or faculty, no specific approval or request is necessary othi 
than the approval of the college sponsor of the club. 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs, and activities by I 
college approved groups, it does have the responsibility to insure that publ 
law and order will be maintained and that the policies of the Board < 
Regents will be observed. Therefore, the college reserves the right to approv 
outside guests who appear on a program on the campus. 

Consequently, where the program is to feature an individual or group | 
individuals who are not members of the Armstrong State College officii 
family, the president of the club or organization, with the approval of tl 
sponsor, must register, not later than ten (10) days before the program is 



32 



ake place, with the Dean of Student Affairs the proposed program and the 
3ecif ic individual or group of individuals participating. 



POLICY ON STUDENT OFF - CAMPUS MEETING HOUSES 

The Student Activities Committee proposes the following policy in 
;spect to the establishment and governance of off -campus housing of 
aternities, sororities, and other student organizations: 

I. Conduct: The Purview of the Student Activities Committee 

Since the Committee recognizes college students as responsible citizens 
f their wider communities and as respected representatives of the College, it 
terefore expects their conduct in off-campus activities to comply with this 
ust. The Committee is thus loathe to frame a set of rules and regulations 
(plicitly setting forth policy adequately encompassed already by the laws 
f our nation, state, county, and city for the guidance of all citizens, 
onsequently, the Committee feels the following statements, in respect to 
le conduct of student organizations in off-campus houses, should be 
ifficient 

A. Alleged violations of the law; involvement in civil suit; or any action, 
rhich might be construed as violations of criminal statues or which might be 
ctionable in civil suit; by the members of an organization while representing 
fie organization in any capacity, shall constitute sufficient ground for the 
omrnittee to actively intervene in order to ascertain for itself the facts of 
he case. In no event is such an intervention to be taken as a prejudgment of 
tudent wrongdoing by the Committee. Students should recognize, however, 
hat any involvement of a College-sponsored organization in the criminal or 
ivil courts, or any action that might lead to such a situation, will inevitably 
eflect on the reputation and on the policies of the College. In such event, 
he College is, ipso facto, an interested party. 

B. Officers or members of an organization appearing before the 
Itudent Activities Committee, or any duly constituted faculty or 
dministrative body of the College, to respond to allegations of wrongdoing 
/hich, in the event of an affirmative finding, might constitute grounds for 
lisciplinary action shall have secured to them those procedural guarantees 
promulgated by the College for the governance of College bodies 
nvestigating the wrongdoing of individual college students. 

II. Conduct: The Responsibilities of College-Affiliated Organizations 
laving Off-Campus Houses 

Applicant organizations will recognize the time honored principle 
hat the obverse side of freedom is responsibility. We expect members of 
hese organizations to act as responsible citizens. For the preservation of 
heir good citizen standing, the Committee delegates first and primary 
esponsibility to the organizations themselves. To this end we promulgate 
he following guidelines: 

A. Applicant organizations must show evidence to the Committee 
hat they have established adequate machinery for dealing with possible 



33 



internal disciplinary problems. 

B. Officers and members of organizations have the obligation tc 
bring to the attention of the relevant College officials any situations whicr 
might seriously compromise the good reputation of the organization and/oi 
the College. Students are asked to exercise sound judgment in recognizing 
for themselves when situations which may develop are of such a serioui 
nature that they cannot be adjudicated properly within the mechanisms 01 
the organization itself. 

C. The faculty sponsor or an adult approved by the Office 01 
Student Affairs shall be present at all meetings and social functions of th< 
organization. When social functions are opwn to the student body, alumni 
etc., the organization will consult with the Office of Student Affairs foi 
advice on whether supervision by police officers is necessary. 

D. Hazing, for any reason, shall be prohibited as an aspect o 
organization activity. 

E. Organizations shall make available to the Student Activities 
Committee for permanent filing on updated copy of their full house rules. 

III. Financial Responsibility 

An applicant organization must demonstrate c inancial competence t< 
meet the recurrent obligations of maintaining the pi smises they occupy. Thi 
organization must in addition show competence to meet a reasonable 
amount of emergency financial obligations usually attendant or 
householding. To hese ends the Committee promulgates the following 
guidelines: 

A. Competence to meet financial obligations cannot be projected or 
the basis of expected revenues from membership dues or other sources. Ir 
the opinion of the Committee the only feasible way such warranty o 
financial responsibility can be assured is by having an economically secun 
individual from the community, or a board made up of such individuals 
assume responsibility for all of the organizations' obligations. 

B. It is expected that the financial affairs or organizations will be or 
a cash or, at most, a regular thirty day billing basis. Decisions b) 
organizations to enter long-term credit obligations must be submitted to tht 
Committee for approval. 

C. Organizations must have their off-campus premises full arx 
adequately insured for liability. 

Clubs And Organizations 

Organization Recognition Procedure 
I. Procedures for submitting an applicancy 

Organizations seeking approval by the student activities committee 
should adopt the following procedures: 

A. A finished draft of a proposed constitution should be submittec 
to each of the members of the committee. The draft should embody 
principles hereinafter set forth, should be redacted in an acceptable form an< 
should be free of grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors. 



34 



. 



B. The draft of the constitution should be accompanied by a brief 
atement incorporating the following: 

1. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of two 
idividuals who may be contacted by members of the committee and who 

be responsible for answering questions about the proposed organization 
nd its constitution. 

2. A brief assessment of the interest expressed by potential 
lembers in the formation of the organization, i. e., how much support you 
link the organization, if approved, will get from the student body. 

NOTE: This statement should be made part of the constitution. 
t should be drafted on a separate page and attached to the individual copies 
f the constitution submitted. 

II. The form and content of the constitution 

In drawing up a constitution the applicants should bear in mind that the 
jnction of a constitution is to set forth the general ground rules for the 
Dnduct of the business of an organization. As it constitutes a fixed 
Inference on permanent file of these ryles, it should be so explicit in those 
reas which it seeks to govern as to leave no doubt as to its meaning, e.g., the 
ties and general duties of the organization's officers and the manner, time 
hd procedures for conducting elections. On the other hand, the committee 
jggests that it would be unwise for the constitution to venture into 
jgislative matters best left to the determination of easily alterable by-laws 
rhich can be passed by an enlarged and more representative membership. 

A. The constitution should be framed in outline form. Because 
nportant changes in the policy and leadership of an organization frequently 
inge on constitutional interpretation, it is strongly suggested that the 
onstitution be framed in outline form for easy reference. For a convenient 
utline form the applicants should consult an acceptable authority such as 
he MLA Style Book or Kate Turabian's Manuel for Writers of Term Papers, 
heses and Dissertations. The committee makes the following suggestions 
especting form: 

1. Important and distinct topics such as "elections/' "amendments to 
he constitution," etc., should be designated by Roman Numerals and a 
opic heading (e.g., IV Elections). 

2. Distinct sub-topic areas should be treated in separate paragraphs 
/hich may, but need not necessarily, be designated by a descending order of 
utline. 

3. The purposes of the committee in making these suggestions as to form 
hould not be thought of as academic arbitrariness. It is sometimes 
"nportant to an organization to be able to make explicit and exact 
eferences to its constitutional document. The form we have suggested 
s designed to facilitate this kind of reference. 

B. There are minimal requirements of the Student Activities 
Committee as to the content of submitted constitutions. Without presuming 
o proscribe the inclusion of other topics not listed or to dictate the general 



35 



order of presentation of topics, the Student Activities Committee insists th«i 
the proposed constitution of any applicant organization include explic 
provision for the following: 

1. Statement of the purposes of the organization. 

2. Provision for choosing a faculty sponsor. 

3. Qualifications for membership. 

4. Titles and duties of officers of the organization. 

5. Elections. In regard to elections the Committee feels that it 
encumbent upon the proposed organization to make constitutional provisio 
for the following: 

a. Free, open, democratic, and periodic election of officers. 

b. Provision for filling interim vacancies of offices. 

6. Funding and financial responsibility. 

a. The constitution must provide for a clear and distim 
delegation of financial responsibility to one or more stipulated officers o 
the organization. 

b. The constitution must provide for the manner of assessin 
the membership for dues. 

c. The constitution must provide for an internal audit of th 
finances of the organization to be presented annually for the consideration 
of its membership. 

7. Meetings 

a. The constitution must provide for a minimal number o 
annual meetings of the membership. 

b. The constitution must provide suitable guarantees that th 
membership will be given advance notice as to the time and place fo 
conducting general meetings. 

c. The constitution must provide a means for calling specia 
meetings where the situation warrants and for notifying the genera 
membership thereof. 

8. Quorum for conducting business 

9. The Method of passing by-laws 

10. Committees 
11. Amendment of the constitution! 1 1. Responsibilities of applicants ii 
making a constitutional presentation 

Responsibilities of the Student Activities Committee are such that i 
must confine its attention to the consideration of substantive matters 
Consequently, the Committee cannot be expected to contribute in any wa^ 
towards putting an organization's constitution in proper form. The entin 
burden of producing a constitution in acceptable form rests with th< 
applicant organization. Thrs means the constitution, before it will b< 
considered by the Committee, must embody the provisions established b) 
the Committee (above ll-B, 1-11), it must be in grammatically acceptable 
form and it must be corrected for spelling and typographical errors.

VIII. STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT 

STUDENT CONDUCT PROGRAM 
ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE 

(As amended and approved by the Faculty April 8, 1969) 
I. THE CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT 
A. General Policies 

1. The College is dedicated not only to learning and the advancemem 
of knowledge, but also to the development of ethically sensitive anc 
responsible persons. It seeks to achieve these goals through a sounc 
educational program and policies governing student conduct that encourage 
independence and maturity. 

2. The College distinguishes its responsibility for student conduct 
from the control functions of the community. When a student has been 
apprehended for the violation of a law of the community, the state, or the 
nation, the College will not request or agree to special consideration for the 
student because of his status as a student. The College will cooperate, 
however, with law enforcement agencies, and with other agencies in any 
program for the reh tbilitation of the student. 

3. The College may apply sanctions or take other appropriate actior 
only when student conduct directly and significantly interferes with the 
College's (a) primary educational responsibility or ensuring the opportunity 
of all members of the College community to attain their educational 
objectives, or (b) subsidiary responsibilities of protecting property, keeping 
records, providing services, and sponsoring non - classroom activities such ai 
lectures, concerts, athlectic events, and social functions. 

4. Students are subject to the separate provisions of the Armstrong 
State College Honor Code, violations of which are not set forth in Section C 
below. The first hearing on violations of the Honor Code shall be before th€ 
Honor Council in accordance with the provisions of the Honor Code. 

5. Procedural fairness is basic to the proper enforcement of all College 
rules. In particular, no disciplinary sanction as serious as expulsion, 
suspension, disciplinary probation, or entry of an adverse notation on any 
permanent record available to persons outside the College shall be imposed 
unless the student has been notified in writing of the charges against him and 
has had an opportunity (a) to appear alone or with any other persons to 
advise and assist him before an appropriate committee, court, or official, (b) 
to know the nature and source of the evidence against him and to present 
evidence in his own behalf, and (c) to have his case reviewed in accordance 
with Part II, Paragraph C below.

is own behalf, and (c) to have his case reviewed in accordance with Part II, 
hragraph C below.

r all policies and rules pertaining to student conduct and in the

offenses shall include the following:

(c) Disciplinary probation with or without loss of designated priviledges

disciplinary probation or the infraction of any college rule during 
the period of disciplinary probation may be grounds for suspension 
or expulsion from the College. The parents of any student under 21 
years of age who is placed on disciplinary probation, suspended, or 
expelled shall be notified. 

(d) Social probation with loss of such specified privileges as may be

nly upon the recommendation of the Student Court. In extraordinary 
ircumstances, where gross violations of conduct rules are disrupting the

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, as Armstrong 
Junior College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Savannah to meet 
a long felt need for a college in the community. The college was housed in 
the Armstrong building, a gift to the city from the family of George F. 
Armstrong. Over the years, five more buildings were constructed or acquired 
in the neighborhood of Forsyth Park and Monterey Square. 

The college, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became a two year unit of 
the University System of Georgia on January 1, 1959 under the control of 
the Regents of the University System. 

In 1962, the Mills B. Lane Foundation purchased a new campus site of over 
200 acres which had been selected by the Regents. The new campus, with 
seven buildings, was occupied in December 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong was made a four year institution and became 
Armstrong State College. The college is fully accredited by the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Schools. Armstrong offers Bachelor of Arts, 
Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Business Administration in 26 areas 
of study. 



PRESIDENT'S 
MESSAGE 




WELCOME-THRICE WELCOME 



The word welcome means, in the original sense, exactly what it says, "well 
come". You are, indeed, "Well come" to Armstrong State College. 

The more technical,crowded, and complicated life and living become, the 
more important becomes education. If man is to competently solve his 
problems of war, pollution, over-population, famine, social problems, etc., 
he must do so through the exercise of logic, technical and scientific 
competence, knowledge and self discipline. These things are simply another 
way of saying "education". 

Therefore, we are glad to welcome new students and greet returning 
students. We hope to join hands, hearts, and minds with you as together we 
seek to know ourselves, others, our living together, and our unspeakable 
challenges. 

We dare you to become educated! 




/.. /^/U^o^l 



Henry L. Ashmore

DR. H. D. PROPST 
Dean of the College 




ACADEMIC INFORMATION 

The following information is a summary of academic information 
provided in the College Bulletin. This information is not intended to be 
complete and should not be relied upon as final authority for information 
affecting your standing in College. For complete information see the College 
Bulletin or the proper administrative official. 

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

A student enrolled as a fulltime student at Armstrong has the privilege of 
taking at least one course with his Dean's approval at Savannah State 
without paying an additional fee. A student may obtain from the Registrar's 
Office the proper form for permission to register at Savannah State College. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who apply to audit courses will not be required to take The* 
Scholastic Aptitude Test but must meet all other requirements for admission 
and pay all regular fees. 

A special form for permission to audit courses may be obtained from the 
Admissions Office. Students enrolled on a full-time credit basis and desiring 
to change from credit status to audit status must have the permission of th< 
instructor. No change may be made after the seventh class meeting. 



-8 



COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of quarter hours in 
which he is enrolled. For example, a student enrolled in a five hour course 
would meet this class one hour a day, five days a week, for the entire 
quarter. Evening classes and lab courses would vary slightly from this 
pattern. 

The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. As a general rule, 
students should expect to spend two hours in study for every hour in class. 

Permission to enroll for more than 1 7 quarter hours will be granted by the 
Registrar to the student: 

a) with an average grade of B for the preceding quarter, or 

b) in an engineering program 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the last two quarters prior to 
graduation 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quarter hours in 
any one quarter. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a maximum of 
1 1 hours unless he has better than a "B" average in the last quarter for which 
grades are available. 




CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the effect of a 
student's attendance on his grades in a course is left entirely to the discretion 
of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is announced 
discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as mastering all assigned reading 
he is also responsible for turning in on time all assignments and tests 
including recitation and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet these 
responsibilities is to attend classes regularly. An instructor may drop a 
student from any class with a grade of 'WF' if he thinks that excessive 
absence prevents that student from satisfactorily fulfilling his responsi- 
bilities. If any excessive absence is the result of prolonged illness, death in 
the family, college business, or religious holidays, the withdrawal grade, will 
either be 'W' or 'WF' depending on the student's status at the time he is 
dropped. Each instructor will be responsible for informing classes on their 
meeting what constitutes excessive absence in that particular class. Each 
student is responsible for knowing the attendance regulation in his class and 
for complying with it. 

DROPPING COURSES 

A student desiring to drop a course after the quarter has begun must 
obtain a Drop-Add Notice in the Student Affairs Office. The notice must be 
signed by the instructor of the course being dropped and returned to the 
Registrar's Office. 

A student who drops a course not more than seven school days after the 
class begins will receive the grade of "W", depending on his status when he 
dropped. A student may not voluntarily drop a course during the last eight 
class days of a quarter. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student is registered, a change in classes will not be made unless 
there is a legitimate reason. If changes are necessary, a student must have the 
written approval of an official in the Student Affairs Office. A charge of 
$2.00 per course is made for any change after registration unless the change 
is initiated by the college. This fee is not refundable and is payable to the 
Business Office. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from college must begin 
the process in the Student Affairs Office. A formal withdrawal is required to 
insure that the student is eligible to return to Armstrong State College. Any 
refund to which a student is entitled will be considered from the date which 
appears on the withdrawal form.

GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. Students doing 
unsatisfactory work (D-F) will receive a mid-term report. The following 
system of grading is used at Armstrong State College:

COMPUTING GRADE POINT AVERAGE 

A student's quarterly honor point average is computed by dividing the 
number of hours for which he is enrolled (attempted hours) into the total 
points received. W f s are excluded from this computation, but WF's and F's 
are considered. A student's overall average is computed by dividing the total 
hours attempted into the total honor points earned while enrolled.

LANE LIBRARY 

The Lane Library occupies a central location on the campus. The building 
is air-conditioned, fully carpeted and equipped with furniture of the highest 
quality. A reading room and individual carrel desks are available on both 
floors. The current periodical and newspaper room is on the first floor. 
Group study rooms (for use by assignment only) are located on the second 
floor. 



Hours. The schedule of library hours is posted on the bulletin board in the 
foyer of the library and also on the outside door of the entrance. 

Resources. The collection consists of about 66,000 cataloged volumes. 
Most of the books belong to one of three categories: (a) general circulating 
books, (b) reference books which have "Ref." at the top of the call number 
and are shelved in the reference section, and (c) reserve books, which are sc 
designated by the instructors, and are kept at the circulation desk. Some 
materials are available in microform (i.e., microfilm, microcards anc 
microfiche). There are approximately 625 journals and newspapers currentl\ 
received. The collection also includes phonograph records, tapes, pamphlet; 
and government documents. A microfilm reader-printer, microcard reader 
microfiche reader and a copying machine are available in the library. 






14 



Circulation Policies. 

1. To obtain a library card, it is necessary to present the Armstrong I.D. 
card to the Circulation Desk. The I.D. card must be punched for the 
current quarter. 

2. Reference books and journals (whether bound or unbound) are for use 
only within the library. 

3. General books may be borrowed for two weeks. Unless another 
borrower is waiting for a book, it may be renewed one time. The date a 
book is due is stamped on a card provided for that purpose in the back 
of the book. To renew a book, it must be brought to the circulation 
desk from which it was borrowed. A student is not permitted to have 
more than five books charged out at any given time. 

4. Reserve books are circulated for the length of time recommended by 
the instructor. 

5. Phonograph records and tapes, unless otherwise designated, circulate 
for one week. 



Fines. For general books the overdue fine for late returns is five cents a 
day. The fine for reserve books is twenty-five cents a day. Overnight reserve 
books, which are due back in the library by 8:30a.m. the following morning, 
carry a fine of twenty-five cents for the first hour and ten cents for each 
additional hour overdue up to the maximum of one dollar per day for each 
book. The fine for recordings, tapes and pamphlets is ten cents per day. 

Fines are not charged to raise funds for the library, but are imposed as a 
means of encouraging the prompt return of library materials so that as many 
as possible may benefit from their use. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library materials will be charged the 
price of the item plus 20% of the value to cover the cost of correcting the 
records and processing a replacement copy, plus any overdue fine accrued. If 
the book is found within the school year, the price of the book will be 
refunded but not the service charge or overdue fine. Borrowers who lose 
books are advised to notify the library at once so that some adjustment may 
be made in the fine charges which accumulate for overdue books. 

Students who owe fines to the library or who have overdue books will 
not receive their quarterly grades, nor will they be permitted to register for 
the next quarter or be given transcripts of their records until their account 
has been cleared. 



-15 



Conduct. 



Quiet. The library does not function as a place to visit with friends. 
Talking disturbs others and interferes with the talker's studying. The 
library staff cannot permit talking, nor can it grimly patrol the reading 
areas to enforce quiet. Students who disregard the regulations on 
talking, or who fail to observe any library regulation regarding suitable 
standards of behavior will be sent out of the library and will not be 
re-admitted without the permission of the Dean of Students. 
Smoking is permitted in the foyer of the library only. 
Food or beverages are not to be brought in to the library building. 
Stealing books or magazines or willfully mutilating them is considered 
reprehensible practices and students are warned that such action can 
result in permanent suspension from the college.

Academic HONOR CODE 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides all members 
the student body with an opportunity to participate in self government. 1 
accompanying responsibilities are outlined below. 

The Honor System, written by a joint committee of faculty c 
students, received an overwhelming endorsement by both faculty c 
students during the Winter Quarter, 1965. 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

I. All Students must agree to abide by the rules and regulations of 
Honor System. A student shall not be accepted at Armstrong St 
College unless he signs the following statement at the time of his f 
registration: 

"I have read the regulations governing the Honor System at Armstrc 
State College, and I understand that as a student at Armstrong, I m 
comply with all of these requirements." This statement and all n 
and regulations governing the Honor System shall be printed in 
official Bulletin and the Student Handbook. The statement shall also 
printed on the application form for admission to be signed by 
student before admission to the college. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council to conduct 
extensive orientation program at the beginning of each quarter for 
newly entering students to explain fully the requirements of the Hoi 
System and to allow full discussion of these regulations. 

I I. The following shall be considered violations of the Honor Code: 

A. Academic dishonesty of any kind (giving or receiving i 
unauthorized help on any assignment, test or paper. At 
beginning of each quarter it shall be the responsibility of e; 
teacher to make clear what shall be considered unauthorized h 
in his course.) 

B. Stealing only when related to cheating. 

C. Lying before the Honor Council. 

D. Failure to report a known offense. (Lying or stealing in any ot 
cases will be considered disciplinary, not Honor, matters.) 

III. Ways of reporting a violation of the Honor Code: 

A. Self-reporting: A student who has broken the Honor Code sho 
report himself to a member of the Honor Council. 

B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of a violat 
of the Honor Code must report the matter. This may be done 
one of two ways: 

1. He may tell the person thought to be guilty to report himself t< 
member of the Honor Council no later than the end of the next sch< 
day. After this designated time the person who is aware of the violat 
must inform a member of the Honor Council so that the Honor Cour 
may contact the accused person if he has not already reported himsi 

2. He may report the suspected violation directly to a member of 
Honor Council without informing the accused. 



The Honor Council will be composed of nine students. 

A. Selection shall be made by the President, Vice-President and 
Secretary of the Student Body, the President and Secretary of the 
Honor Council, together with three faculty members appointed by 
the President of the college. Selection shall be based on the 
following requirements: 

High moral principles and unquestioned academic integrity in all their 
relations to fellow students, faculty, and administrative officials. 
A minimum of C+ for the preceding quarter and an over-all average of 
C+. Any student not in good standing with the college in academic or 
disciplinary matters is ineligible to serve on the Honor Council. Any 
member of the Honor Council who falls below these requirements will 
be ineligible to continue his term of service. A replacement will not be 
selected, however, unless the total number of students on the Honor 
Council falls below seven. 

B. The selection committee shall submit a questionnaire to those 
students who meet these requirements. On the basis of the 
questionnaires the committee has the power to appoint three 
seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores to serve on the Honor 
Council. At least three committee members shall be women and at 
ieast three shall be men. This distribution may be altered when 
deemed best by the selection committee. The appointments shall 
be made by the second Tuesday in March, and the Council shall 
assume its duties on April 1 . 

C. The Honor Council shall elect one of its members to serve as 
President and one as Secretary. The President shall preside at all 
meetings and trials, and the Secretary shall maintain a written 
record of all proceedings.

attending summer classes will serve on the Council for the summer 
together with other students appointed by the Council and 
the Dean of Student Affairs. 

The Honor Council shall formulate its own bylaws and procedure. 

A. An Honor Council meeting shall be called by the President of the 
Council to examine a reported violation as soon as possible after 
such a report. When possible the meeting of the Council will be 
held within a week of the Violation. 

B. At the meeting the Honor Council will hear the accusation, the 
testimony of any witnesses, and any defense the accused may wish 
to present.

members, including the President. !n the absence of the President, 
the senior justice shall preside. 



19 



G. The Secretary will keep minutes of all meetings. All off ic 
testimony will be tape recorded, provided that the record 
devices are under the control of the Council. 

H. A vote of two-thirds majority of the members of the Hor 
Counci' present and voting will be necessary for the conviction 
the accused. The Council, in the event of a verdict of guilty, sr 
determine the penalty by majority vote. 

I. The vote will be taken by secret ballot. 
VI. Post-trial Procedure. 

A. Immediately upon conclusion of the trial, the accused shall 
notified of the findings and of the recommendation that 1 
Council wili make to the President of the college. 

B. If the accused is found innocent, he shall be notified of the find 
and cautioned that the trial may be re-opened for good cause 
the Council within a period of three weeks or at the request of 1 
professor in whose course the alleged violation occurred. 

C. If a person is found guilty, the Honor Council will recommend 
the President of Armstrong State College one of the following: 

1. Expulsion from the class and denial of credit in the course in which 1 
violation occurred and denial of the position of any elective office. 

2. Suspension from school for any number of quarters (the minimi 
suspension will be for the remainder of the quarter in which 1 
violation occurs.) 

3. Expulsion from school. In cases where the accused is found guilty, 1 
Honor Council will report in writing, the accused, the professor of 1 
class in which the violation occurred, and the accusor the decision 
the Council. The secretary of the Honor Council will then post 
official notice on the bulletin boards announcing the Council's acti 
without mentioning the name of the accused. 

Although the College feels that the above three recommendations i 
appropriate for academic dishonesty, it also recognizes that uniq 
circumstances may arise. For such cases a series of appeals is open 
the convicted student. He may appeal either the conviction or 1 
punishment or both in the following way: 
A To the President of Armstrong State College in a letter.

unauthorized help on this work. This may be done by writing the wc 
"Pledged" followed by the student's signature. 

IX The Honor System is dependent upon student cooperation and suppo 
It is felt that every student wishes the credit for his work to 
unquestioned and the college he has chosen to be respected. 

X. A revision of the Honor System will require a majority vote of t 
faculty and of the student body.

State College and the Regents of the University System of Georgia. 

STATEMENT ON DISRUPTIVE AND OBSTUCTIVE BEHAVIOR 

BOARD OF REGENTS 

UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA 

Adopted October, 1968 

The Board of Regents of the University System reaffirms its policies to 
support fully freedom of expression by each member of the academic 
community and to preserve and protect the rights and freedom of its faculty 
members and students to engage in debate, discussion, peaceful and 
non-disruptive protest and dissent. The following statement relates 
specifically to the problem described below. It does not change or in any 
way infringe upon the Board's existing policies and practices in support of 
freedom of expression and action. Rather, it is considered neccessary to 
combat the ultimate effect of irresponsible disruptive and obstructive actions 
by students and faculty which tend to destroy academic freedom and the 
institutional structures through which it operates. 

In recent years a new and serious problem has appeared on many 
college and university campuses in the Nation. Some students, faculty 
members, and others have on occasion engaged in demonstrations, sit-ins and 
other activities that have clearly and deliberately interfered with the regular 
and orderly operation of the institution concerned. Typically, these actions 
have been the physicaf occupation of a building or campus area for a 
protracted period of time or the use or display of verbal or written 
obscenities involving indecent or disorderly conduct. 

These actions have gone beyond all heretofore recognized bounds of 
meetings for discussion, persuasion, or even protest, in that: (1) acquiescence 
to demands of the demonstrators is the condition for dispersal, and (2) the 
reasonable and written directions of institutional officials to disperse have 
been ignored. Such activates thus have become clearly recognizable as an 
action of force, operating outside all established channels on the campus, 
including that of intellectual debate and persuasion which are at the very 
heart of education. 

The Board of Regents is deeply concerned by this new problem. Under 
the Constitution of the State of Georgia, under all applicable court rulings, 
and in keeping with the tradition of higher education in the United States, 
the Board is ultimately responsible for the orderly operation of the several 
institutions of the University System and the preservation of academic 
freedom in these institutions. The Board cannot and will not divest itself of 
this responsibility. 



26 






Of equal or even greater importance, such action of force as has been 
described above destroys the very essence of higher education. This essence 
s found in the unhampered freedom to study, investigate, write, speak, and 
debate on any aspect or issue of life. This freedom, which reaches its full 
lowering on college and university campuses, is an essential part of 
American democracy, comparable to the jury system of the electoral 
Drocess. 

For these reasons and in order to respond directly and specifically to 
this new problem, the Board of Regents stipulates that any student, faculty 
member, administrator, or employee, acting individually or in concert with 
others, who clearly obstructs or disrupts, or attempts to obstruct or disrupt 
any teaching, research, administrative, disciplinary or public service activity, 
or any other activity authorized to be discharged or held on campus of the 
University System of Georgia is considered by the Board to have committed 
an act of gross irresponsibility and shall be subject to disciplinary 
orocedures, possibly resulting in dismissal or termination of employment. 

The Board reaffirms its belief that all segments of the academic 
community are under a strong oblfgation and have a mutual responsibility to

STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE 




JOE A BUCK 
Director of Student 
Activities 



The Student Activity Fee of $15.00 per 
quarter from each student is used to finance the 
Student Activity Program. Payment of this fee 
entitles students to free admission to all drama 
productions and home athletic events. Students 
receive reduced admission prices to dances and 
concerts. The INKWELL is also distributed free. 
Payment of this fee for three quarters entitles 
the student to a copy of the college annual, THE 
GEECHEE 

Disposition of student activity fees is 
handled by the Student Senate in consultation 
with the Dean of Student Affairs, the Director 
of Student Activities, and the Comptroller. This 



35 



disposition of funds is based on requests from various recognized 
organizations. The following guidelines are used by the senate to determine 
appropriations: 

For an organization to receive activity fees, one of the two following 
criteria must be met. EITHER: 

1. The organization must exist purely to serve or represent the student 
body as a whole. Its programs and operations benefit the overall 
student body and participation in the organization must be open to all 
students. The organization must not have any racial, religious, or ethnic 
ties which might discourage otherwise interested students from joining 
it. The organization cannot have as its primary aim service to any 
special interest group, but must rather serve the entire student body. 

2. The organization must be presenting a program which satisfies the 
following three requirements: 

a. The program must be of general benefit to the student body and 
participation in the program must be open to all interested 
students 

b. The program must be one which the sponsoring organization is 
uniquely able to present or at least one which the sponsoring 
organization is clearly better able to present than any other 
campus organization already being funded under criteria No. 1 
above. 

c. The program must have sufficient value to warrant its funding 
when compared to other programs satisfying the other critieria 
explained above. 

If an organization requestsfunding for a program that satisfies the above 
three requirements then the Finance Committee of the Senate recommends 
funding the program. Of course, the Finance Committee reserves the right to 
review any organization at any time in order to insure that the funded 
organization is complying with the guidelines above.

SPECIAL EVENTS 



Throughout the year, various special events are planned on the campus. 
Student activities include such activities as dances, plays, concerts, lectures, 
intramurals, and various other special events. 

In the Fall, the Miss Geechee Pageant is held with the winner competing

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
AND ACTIVITIES 

Armstrong State College 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College exist as an integral 
part of the total educational program. They have as their purpose to 
contribute to the social welfare of the students as well as to benefit the 
entire community. Student organizations are organized and managed by 
students and are subject to the regulations of the college. As an integral part 
of the college community, they have certain responsibilities: effective 
achievement of the organization's announced purposes, appropriate social 
and community relations, and sound business management. Accepted 
standards of good taste shall be observed in the social conduct of such 
groups. Basic democratic operational procedures are expected of all student 
organizations. 

Student organizations are required to have an advisor before they can 
function as recognized organizations of the college. 

The Director of Student Activities and faculty advisers are available to 
advise and assist organizations, but the final responsibility for performance 
rests with the members themselves. Failure to abide by Armstrong State 
College policies may result in suspension or termination of the privileges to 
operate. 

Student organizations are responsible for complying with the following 
regulations: 

A. No student organization will be permitted to affiliate with any 
outside group or organization without the approval of the 
President of Armstrong State College. 

B. All student organizations will be under the year-round supervision 
of the college whether the college is in session or not. 

C. Meetings of all recognized organizations will be cleared through 
the Director of Student Activities. 

D. Social activities will be limited to Armstrong State College 
students and their dates. 

For infraction of the above standards the Student Senate may, with the 
approval of the Director of Student Activities: 

1 . Deny recognition of the group as an organization, possibly demanding a 
forfeiture of charter. 

2. Deny use of college facilities. 

3. Deny social activities for a specified period. 

Social Regulations 

A social function is defined as a dance, party, activity or entertainment 
sponsored by the college or a college-approved student group. 

-39- 



A. Major social functions are college-wide events sponsored through 
student activity fees and open to all Armstrong State College 
students. 

B. Special social functions are events sponsored by an organization 
for its membership only or for the entire student body. 

C. In addition to the faculty advisers, each organization must secure 
approved chaperons from among the faculty. 

D. Student organizations may not hold social functions open to the 
public. This applies to charge and non-charge activity. To be 
eligible for admission to any social activity, at least one member of 
each couple must be a college student and present a valid ID card. 
Exceptions to this standard will be made for events connected 
with Homecoming in order that Armstrong State College Alumni 
may attend. 

E. Social functions will not be scheduled on the weekend prior to 
final examinations, nor during the week preceding final 
examinations. 

Location 

1. When appropriate, student organizations are expected to use college 
facilities for social functions. 

2. Permission to use the Student Center or other college facilities is 
requested through the office of the Director of Student Activities. 
Organizations are responsible for removing all decorations and signs 
relating to the activity as well as paying a $10.00 fee to cover the 
expense of employing a custodian. 

Contracts 

The contracts for hiring a band or other entertainment must be signed 
by the Comptroller of the College. Contracts cannot be signed unless the 
money in the account of the organization is sufficient to cover the contract. 

Conduct 

When a student organization sponsors an activity, it is responsible for 
the conduct of the individual participants. 

Financial Responsibilities 

1. The responsibility for organizational funds not derived from student 
activity fees will rest with the individual organization. Such 
organizations will present a quarterly financial report to the Office of 
Student Affairs and have their financial accounts audited annually by 
the office of the Comptroller. 

2. Organizations which derive operating funds from student activity fees 
must obtain a purchase order from the Director of Student Activities

Clubs and Organizations 

Organization Recognition Procedure 

I. Procedures for submitting an application 

Organizations seeking approval by the student activities committee 
should adopt the following procedures: 

A. A finished draft of a proposed constitution should be submitted to 
each of the ten (10) members of the committee. The draft should 
embody principles hereinafter set forth, should be redacted in an 
acceptable form and should be free of grammatical, spelling, and 
typographical errors. 

B. The draft of the constitution should be accompanied by a brief 
statement incorporating the following: 

1. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of two 
individuals who may be contacted by members of the 
committee and who can be responsible for answering 
questions about the proposed organization and its constitu- 
tion. 

2. A brief assessment of the interest expressed by potential 
members in the formation of the organization, i.e., how 
much support you think the organization, if approved, will 
get from the student body. 

NOTE 

This statement should be made part of the constitution. It should 
be drafted on a separate page and attached to the individual copies 
of the constitution submitted. 

I I . The form and content of the constitution 

In drawing up a constitution the applicants should bear in mind that 
the function of a constitution is to set forth the general ground rules for the 
conduct of the business of an organization. As it constitutes a fixed 
reference on permanent file of these rules, it should be so explicit in those 
areas which it seeks to govern as to leave no doubt as to its meaning, e.g., the 
titles and general duties of the organization's officers and the manner, time 
and procedures for conducting elections. On the other hand, the committee 
suggests that it would be unwise for the constitution to venture into 
legislative matters best left to the determination of easily alterable by-laws 
which can be passed by an enlarged and more representative membership. 



43 



A. The constitution should be framed in outline form. Because 
important changes in the policy and leadership of an organization 
frequently hinge on constitutional interpretation, it is strongly 
suggested that the constitution be framed in outline form for easy 
reference. For a convenient outline form the applicants should 
consult an acceptable authority such as the MLA Style Book or 
Kate Turabian's Manuel for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and 
Dissertations. The committee makes the following suggestions 
respecting form: 

1. Important and distinct topics such as "elections," "amend- 
ments to the constitution," etc., should be designated by 
Roman Numerals and a topic heading (e.g., IV Elections). 

2. Distinct sub-topic areas should be treated in separate 
paragraphs which may, but need not necessarily, be 
designated by a descending order of outline. 

3. The purposes of the committee in making these suggestions 
as form should not be thought of as academic arbitrariness. It 
is sometimes important to an organization to be able to 
make explicit and exact references to its constitutional 
document. The form we have suggested is designed to 
facilitate this kind of reference. 

B. There are minimal requirements of the Student Activities 
Committee as to the content of submitted constitutions. Without 
presuming to proscribe the inclusion of other topics not listed or 
to dictate the general order of presentation of topics, the Student 
Activities Committee insists that the proposed constitution of any 
applicant organization include explicit provision for the following: 

1 . Statement of the purposes of the organization. 

2. Provision for choosing a faculty sponsor. 

3. Qualifications for membership. 

4. Titles and duties of officers of the organization. 

5. Elections. In regard to elections the Committee feels that it is 
encumbent upon the proposed organization to make 
constitutional provision for the following: 

a. Free, open, democratic, and periodic election of 
officers. 

b. Provision for filling interim vacancies of offices. 

6. Funding and financial responsibility. 

a. Ths constitution must provide for a clear and distinct 
delegation of financial responsibility to one or more 
stipulated officers of the organization. 

b. The constitution must provide for the manner of assessing 
the membership for dues. 

-44- 



c. The constitution must provide for an internal audit of 
the finances of the organization to be presented 
annually for the consideration of its membership. 

7. Meetings 

a. The constitution must provide for a minimal number of 
annual meetings of the membership. 

b. The constitution must provide suitable guarantees that the

III Responsibilities of applicants in making a constitutional presentation 

Responsibilities of the Student Activities Committee are such that it 
must confine its attention to the consideration of substantive matters. 
Consequently, the Committee cannot be expected to contribute in any way 
towards putting an organization's constitution in proper form. The entire 
burden of producing a constitution in acceptable form rests with the 
applicant organization. This means the constitution, before it will be 
considered by the Committee, must embody the provisions established by 
the Committee (above 11-B, 1-11), it must be in grammatically acceptable 
form and it must be corrected for spelling and typographical errors. 

FINAL RECOGNITION 

The Student Activities Committee meets with representatives of each 
organization desiring recognition by the college. After examining the 
constitution and after consulting the organization, the Student Activities 
Committee votes as to whether the the organization will be recognized. The 
President of the College has the authority to grant final recognition to an 
organization. 

POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in existence for the pupose of providing a 
place and climate for the orderly process of learning. Therefore, the 
following, which conforms to the policy of the University System of Georgia 
relative to the use of campuses, constitutes Armstrong State College's policy 
for the use of the facilities and or campus. 



45 



1. Armstrong State College is state property and is thereby open tc 
any citizen desiring to visit. The conduct of visitors is expected tc 
conform with regular college policies. 

2. Approved and recognized college student and faculty organiza 
tions may promote any program with any featured speakei 
provided the program is approved by the institution in accordana 
with stated college policy, (see POLICY REGARDING THE 
APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF 
OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS). 

3. The facilities and campus may not be made available for genera 
partisan political activities. 

4. The facilities and campus may not be used by outside groups ant 
non-student groups except in conjunction with item 2 above. 

5. No activity will be permitted which interferes with the normal ant 
orderly educational functions of this college. 

POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUTSIDE 
GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Armstrong State College encourages the formation of clubs ant 
organizations among the students and faculty. In the interest of developing 
educational, cultural and recreational activities, the college expects tt 
cooperate fully with recognized college groups, clubs or organizations a 
these seek to provide programs for their members. Whenever possible 
Armstrong State College will permit these college-related groups to use thi 
physical facilities. 

The college recognizes that the general programs of groups, clubs ant 
organizations fall into three categories, namely, (1) business meetings, (2 
social or recreational activities, and (3) programs which have a clea 
educational purposes germane to the organization. 

In those cases where the meetings involve members of the collegi 
family, either students or faculty, no specific approval or request is necessan 
other than the approval of the college sponsor of the club. 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs, and activities b> 
all college approved groups, it does have the responsibility to insure tha 
public law and order will be maintained and that the policies of the Board o 
Regents will be observed. Therefore, the college reserves the right to know o 
outside guests who appear on a program on the campus and to determim 
any special arrangements or accomodations which might be required. 

Consequently, where the program is to feature an individual or group o 
individuals who are not members of the Armstrong State College officia 
family, the president of the club or organization with the approval of th< 
sponsor, must register, not later than ten (10) days before the program is tc 
take place with the Dean of Student Affairs the proposed program and th< 
specific individual or group of individuals participating.

POLICY ON STUDENT OFF-CAMPUS MEETING HOUSES 

The Student Activities Committee proposes the following policy in 
respect to the establishment and governance of off-campus housing of 
fraternities, sororities, and other student organizations: 

I. Conduct: The Purview of the Student Activities Committee 

Since the Committee recognizes college students as responsible 
citizens of their wider communities and as respected representatives of the 
College, it therefore expects their conduct in off -campus activities to comply 
with this trust. The Committee is thus loathe to frame a set of rules and 
regulations explicitly setting forth policy adequately encompassed already 
by the laws of our nation, state, county, and city for the guidance of all 
citizens. Consequently, the Committee feels the following statements, in 
respect to the conduct of student organizations in off-campus houses, should 
be sufficient. 

A. Alleged violations of the law; involvement in civil suit; or any 
action, which might be construed as violations of criminal statutes 
or which might be actionable in civil suit; by the members of an 
organization while representing the organization in any capacity, 
shall constitute sufficient ground for the Committee to actively 
intervene in order to ascertain for itself the facts of the case. In no 
event is such an intervention to be taken as a prejudgment of 
student wrongdoing by the Committee. Students should recognize, 
however, that any involvement of a College-sponsored organi- 
zation in the criminal or civil courts, or any action that might lead 
to such a situation, will inevitably reflect on the reputation and on 
the policies of the College. In such event, the College is, ipso facto, 
an interested party. 

B. Officers of members of an organization appearing before the 
Student Activities Committee, or any duly constituted faculty or 
administrative body of the College, to respond to allegations of 
wrongdoing which, in the event of an affirmative finding, might 
constitute grounds for disciplinary action shall have secured to 
them those procedural guarantees promulgated by the College for 
the governance of College bodies investigating the wrongdoing of 
individual college students. 

II. Conduct: The Responsibilities of College-Affiliated Organizations 
Having Off-Campus Houses 

Applicant organizations will recognize the time honored principle that 
the obverse side of freedom is responsibility. We expect members of these 
organizations to act as responsible citizens. For the preservation of their 
good citizen standing, the Committee delegates first and primary 



-47- 



responsibility to the organizations themselves. To this end we promulgate 
the following guidelines: 

A. Applicant organizations must show evidence to the Committee 
that they have established adequate machinery for dealing with 
possible internal disciplinary problems. 

B. Officers and members of organizations have the obligation to bring 
to the attention of the relevant College officials any situations 
which might seriously compromise the good reputation of the 
organization and/or the College. Students are asked to exercise 
sound judgment in recognizing for themselves when situations 
which may develop are of such a serious nature that they cannot 
be adjudicated properly within the mechanisms of the 
organization itself. 

C. The faculty sponsor or an adult approved by the Office of Student 
Affairs shall be present at all meetings and social functions of the 
organization. When social functions are open to the student body, 
alumni, etc., the organization will consult with the Office of 
Student Affairs for advice on whether supervision by police 
officers is necessary. 

D. Hazing, for any reason, shall be prohibited as an aspect of 
organization activity. 

E. Organizations shall make available to the Student Activities 

Committee for permanent filing an updated copy of their full 
house rules. 

III. Financial Responsibility 

An applicant organization must demonstrate financial competence to 
meet the recurrent obligations of maintaining the premises they occupy. The 
organization must in addition show competence to meet a reasonable 
amount of emergency financial obligations usually attendant on 
hcuseholding. To these ends the Committee promulgates the following 
guidelines: 

A. Competence to meet financial obligations cannot be projected on 
the basis of expected revenues from membership dues or other 
sources. In the opinion of the Committee the only feasible way 
such warranty of financial responsibility can be assured is by 
having an economically secure individual from the. community, or 
a board made up of such individuals, assume responsibility for all 
of the organizations' obligations. 

B. It is expected that the financial affairs or organizations will be on 
a cash or, at most, a regular thirty day billing basis. Decisions by 
organizations to enter long-term credit obligations must be 
submitted to the Committee for approval. 

C. Organizations must have their off-campus premises fully and 
adequately insured for liability.

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT 

STUDENT CONDUCT PROGRAM 
ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE 
(As Approved By The Board of Regents, June 1969) 

THE CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT 
General Policies 

1 . The College is dedicated not only to learning and the advancement 
of knowledge, but also to the development of ethically sensitive 
and responsible persons. It seeks to achieve these goals through a 
sound educational program and policies governing student conduct 
that encourage independence and maturity. 

2. The College distinguishes its responsibility for student conduct 
from the control functions of the community. When a student has 
been apprehended for the violation of a law of the community, 
the state, or the nation, the College will not request or agree to 
special consideration for the student because of his status as a 
student. The College will cooperate, however, with law 
enforcement agencies, and with other agencies in any program for 
the rehabilitation of the student. 

3. The College may apply sanctions or take other appropriate action 
only when student conduct directly and significantly interferes 
with the College's (a) primary educational responsibility or 
ensuring the opportunity of all members of the College 
community to attain their educational objectives, or (b) subsidiary 
responsibilities of protecting property, keeping records, providing 
services, and sponsoring non-classroom activities such as lectures, 
concerts, athletic events, and social functions. 

4. Students are subject to the separate provisions of the Armstrong 
State College Honor Code, violations of which are not set forth in 
Section C below. The first hearing on violations of the Honor 
Code shall be before the Honor Council in accordance with the 
provisions of the Honor Code. 

5. Procedural fairness is basic to the proper enforcement of all 
College rules. In particular, no disciplinary sanction as serious as 
expulsion, suspension, disciplinary probation, or entry of an 
adverse notation on any permanent record available to persons 
outside the College shall be imposed unless the student has been 
notified in writing of the charges against him and has had an 
opportunity (a) to appear alone or with any other persons to 
advise and assist him before an appropriate committee, court, or 
official, (b) to know the nature and source of the evidence against 
him and to present evidence in his own behalf, and (c) to have his 
case reviewed in accordance with Part II, Paragraph C below. 

49- 



6. Students shall have an opportunity to participate in the formation 
of all policies and rules pertaining to student conduct and in the 
enforcement of all such rules. 

7. No disciplinary action shall be imposed on a student by or in the 
name of the College except in accordance with this Code or the 
Honor Code, whichever shall apply. 

B. Sanctions 

1. Sanctions which may be imposed for the commission of college 
offenses shall include the following: 

(a) Expulsion from the College, Expulsion means permanent 
separation from the College. 

(b) Suspension from the College for a definite or indefinite 
period of time. Suspension means involuntary disenrollment 
and/or withdrawal of the privilege of enrollment. 

(c) Disciplinary probation with or without loss of designated 
privileges for a definite period of time. The violation of the 
terms of the disciplinary probation or the infraction of any 
college rule during the period of disciplinary probation may 
be grounds for suspension or expulsion from the College. The 
parents of any student under 21 years of age who is placed 
on disciplinary probation, suspended, or expelled shall be 
notified. 

(d) Social probation with loss of such specified privileges as may 
be consistent with the offense committed. The loss of 
privileges shall be for a definite period of time. 

(e) Reprimand. A written rebuke, of which a record will be 
retained in the student's file so long as he remains at 
Armstrong, but which will not be forwarded to any other 
college or employer. 

(f) Admonition and warning. 

2. The sanctions of expulsion or suspension ordinarily shall be 
imposed only upon the recommendation of the Student Court. In 
extraordinary circumstances, where gross violations of conduct 
rules are disrupting the proper functioning of the College, students 
may be summarily suspended by the Dean of Student Affairs. 
Appeal from such suspension may be made in accordance with 
Part II, Paragraph C, Appeal Procedures, below. 

C. Violations 

1. Expulsion or suspension from the College or any lesser sanction 

may resultfrom the commission of any of the following offenses:

which was committed on campus, or which involves college 

-50-

community acting in their official capacity.

the University System of Georgia, a copy which shall be on 
reserve in the library.

perpetrated for the purpose of submitting a student to 
physical pain, discomfort, indignity, or humiliation at any 
time or any place. 

(d) Forgery, alteration, destruction, or misuse of college 
documents, records, or identification cards, or furnishing 
false information to the College with intent to deceive, or 
possession of fire arms. 

(e) Reproducing or unauthorized possession of keys to any 
college facility or entering any college facility without proper 
authority. 

(f) Malicious destruction, damage, or misuse of college property, 
including library materials, or of private property on the

beiow. 
2. Disciplinary probation or any lesser sanction may result from the 
commission of any of the following offenses: 

(a) Failure to comply with Georgia law concerning the use, 
possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages. This 
would include all on-campus activities and those off -campus 
activities paid for out of Student Activity Funds. 

(b) Disorderly conduct on campus or at off-campus affairs 
financed by Student Activity Funds. 

(c) Violation of any college rule, subsequently promulgated by 
the College for the infraction of which sanctions may be 
imposed under this Code. All such rules shall be in writing 
and shall be published and posted on the official College 
Bulletin Board in such manner as to furnish adequate notice 
of their contents to students affected by such rules. The 
College's failure to comply with this requirement shall be a 
complete defense to any charge of violation of a rule of 
which the student has no actual knowledge. A student's 
failure to familiarize himself with published rules shall not be 
an adequate defense.

erience that you will need in higher education. The extent to 
'hich you take advantage of these experiences will, of course, de- 
end on you. It is the hope of the faculty and the administration 
lat this shall become a joint venture between you and us. 

Welcome as a new member, or as a returning citizen, to a 
uality institution in beautiful historical Savannah.

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, 
as Armstrong Junior College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of 
the City of Savannah to meet a long felt need for a college 
in the community. The college was housed in the Armstrong 
building, a gift to the city from the family of George F. Arm- 
strong. Over the years, five more buildings were constructed 
or acquired in the neighborhood of Forsyth Park and Monterey 
Square. 

The college, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became 
a two year unit of the University System of Georgia on Janu- 
ary 1, 1959, under the control of the Regents of the University 
System. 

In 1962, the Mills B. Lane Foundation purchased a new 
campus site of over 200 acres which had been selected by the 
Regents. The new campus, with seven buildings, was occupied 
in December 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong was made a four year institution and 
became Armstrong State College. The college is fully ac- 
credited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 
Armstrong offers Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science and the 
Bachelor of Business Administration in 26 areas of study. 



ACADEMIC 
INFORMATION 




DR. H. D. PROPST 
Dean of the College 



The following information is a summary of academic in- 
formation provided in the College Bulletin. This information 
is not intended to be complete and should not be relied upon 
as final authority for information affecting your standing in 
College. For complete information see the College Bulletin 
or the proper administrative official. 

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

A student enrolled as a fulltime student at Armstrong has 
the privilege of taking at least one course with his Dean's ap- 
proval at Savannah State without paying an additional fee. 
A student may obtain from the Registrar's Office the proper 
form for permission to register at Savannah State College. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who apply to audit courses will not be required to 
take The Scholastic Aptitude Test but must meet all other re- 
quirements for admission and pay all regular fees. 

A special form for permission to audit courses may be ob- 
tained from the Admissions Office. Students enrolled on a full- 
time credit basis and desiring to change from credit status to 
audit status must have the permission of the instructor. No 
change may be made after the seventh class meeting. 



COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of 
quarter hours in which he is enrolled. For example, a student 
enrolled in a five hour course would meet this class one hour 
a day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. Evening classes 
and lab courses would vary slightly from this pattern. 

The average student load is 16-17 hours per quarter. As 
a general rule, students should expect to spend two hours in 
study for every hour in class. 

Permission to enroll for more than 17 quarter hours will 
be granted by the Registrar to the student: 

a) with an average grade of B for the preceding quarter, 
or 

b) in an engineering program 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the last two quarters 
prior to graduation 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 
quarter hours in any one quarter. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a 
maximum of 1 1 hours unless he has better than a "B" aver- 
age in the last quarter for which grades are available. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and 
the effect of a student's attendance on his grades in a course 
is left entirely to the discretion of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is 
announced, discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as 
mastering all assigned reading,- he is also responsible for 
turning in on time all assignments and tests, including recita- 
tion and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet these 
responsibilities is to attend classes regularly. An instructor 
may drop a student from any class with a grade of 'WF' if 
he thinks that excessive absence prevents that student from 
satisfactorially fulfilling his responsibilities. If any excessive 
absence is the result of prolonged illness, death in the family, 

8 



college business, or religious holidays, the withdrawal grade, 
will either be 'W or 'WF' depending on the student's status 
at the time he is dropped. Each instructor will be respon- 
sible for informing classes on their meeting what constitutes 
excessive absence in that particular class. Each student is 
responsible for knowing the attendance regulation in his class 
and for complying with it. 

DROPPING COURSES 

A student desiring to drop a course after the quarter has 
begun must obtain a Drop-Add Notice in the Student Affairs 
Office. The notice must be signed by the instructor of the 
course being dropped and returned to the Registrar's Office. 

A student who drops a course not more than seven school 
days after the class begins will receive the grade of "W", de- 
pending on his status when he dropped. A student may not 
voluntarily drop a course during the last eight class days of 
a quarter. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student is registered, a change in classes will 
not be made unless there is a legitimate reason. If changes 
are necessary, a student must have the written approval of 
an official in the Student Affairs Office. A charge of $2.00 
per course is made for any change after registration unless 
the change is initiated by the college. This fee is not refund- 
able and is payable to the Business Office. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from col- 
lege must begin the process in the Student Affairs Office. A 
formal withdrawal is required to insure that the student is 
eligible to return to Armstrong State College. Any refund to 
which a student is entitled will be considered from the date 
which appears on the withdrawal form. 

GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. Stu- 
dents doing unsatisfactory work (D-F) will receive a mid-term 
report. The following system of grading is used at Armstrong 
State College:

COMPUTING GRADE POINT AVERAGE 

A student's quarterly honor point average is computed by 
dividing the number of hours for which he is enrolled (at- 
tempted hours; into the total points received. W's are ex- 
cluded from this computation, but WF's and F's are considered. 
A student's overall average is computed by dividing the total 
hours attempted into the total honor points earned while 
enrolled. 

EXAMPLE OF GRADE POINT AVERAGE COMPUTATION 

Course for Quarter Hours Grade Honor Pts. Earned 

English 101 5 C 10 (5x2) 

History 114 5 B 15 (5x3) 

Math 101 ID 5 (5x1) 

P.E. Ill 15 B 3 (1x3) 

Total 16 33 

33 divided by 16 = (quarterly grade point average) 

CHANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's Of- 
fice, they become final. An "I" grade which has not been 
removed by the middle of the next quarter automatically 
becomes an "F". 

SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS 

Students attending college under the Social Security Act 
must carry twelve (12) quarter hours each quarter in order 
to receive benefits. 

10 



SELECTIVE SERVICE 

Students who are registered with the Selective Service Sys- 
tem should complete an SS Form 109 at the beginning of 
each academic year. A student who is taking twelve (12) 
quarter hours or more will be reported as a full-time student. 
Those taking less than 12 hours will be reported as part-time 
students. Student registrants should earn a minimum of forty- 
five (45) quarter hours each academic year in order to be 
eligible for a continued ll-S Student Deferment. 

VETERANS AFFAIRS 

Veteran affairs are handled in the office of Admissions 
and Records. Veterans and dependents of veterans should 
check in this office at the beginning of each quarter to make 
certain that their file is complete. The Certificate of Eligi- 
bility is an essential part of your file and should be brought 
directly to the Office of Admissions and Records. For full 
benefits, a veteran must enroll for at least twelve. (12) quarter 
hours each quarter. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

A student failing to maintain the grade point average in- 
dicated for quarter hours attempted will be placed on acad- 
emic probation: 

Qt. Hours Attempted At G. P. A. 
Armstrong and elsewhere: Required Cumulative: 
0-15 1.3 

16-30 1.4 

31-45 1.5 

46-60 1 .6 

61-75 1.7 

76-90 1 .8 

91-105 1.9 

106-120 1.9 

121-135 and over 2.0 

The academic status of students who have attempted other 
institutions will be determined by using only work attempted 
at Armstrong State College in computing the grade point 
average. 

11 



The minimum grade point average required of such stu- 
dents must correspond to the total quarter hours attempted 
at Armstrong and elsewhere as presented in the preceding 
chart. Any student whose grade point average drops below 
these minimums will be placed on academic probation. 

A student on academic probation must (1) at the com- 
pletion of the next 15 quarter hours, achieve the cumulative 
grade point average required for quarter hours attempted, 
or (2) at the completion of the next 15 quarter hours, achieve 
at least a "C" (2.0) average for these 15 quarter hours and 
for each successive 13 quarter hours attempted until he achieves 
the cumulative grade point average required in the preceding 
table. 

There will be no minimum number of the academic quarter 
hours required for individuals who are on scholastic probation. 

Failing to meet these requirements, a student will be dis- 
missed from the college for one quarter. A third such academic 
dismissal will be final. 



APPEALS FOR ACADEMIC DISMISSALS 

A student dismissed for academic reasons may appeal by 
letter to the President, who will refer the appeal to the Com- 
mittee on Academic Standing. Such letter of appeal should 
state the nature of any extenuating circumstances relating to 
the academic deficiency; the letter must be received by the 
President no later than 9:00 a.m. of Registration Day. 



LANE LIBRARY 

The Lane Library occupies a central location on the cam- 
pus. The building is air-conditioned, fully carpeted and equip- 
ped with furniture of the highest quality. A reading room 
and individual carrel desks are available on both floors. The 
current periodical and newspaper room is on the first floor. 
Group study rooms (for use by assignment only) are located 
on the second floor. 

12 




Hours. The schedule of library hours is posted on the 
bulletin board in the foyer of the library and also on the out- 
side door of the entrance. 

Resources. The collection consists of about 66,000 cata- 
loged volumes. Most of the books belong to one of three 
categories: (a) general circulating books, (b) reference books 
which have "Ref." at the top of the call number and are 
shelved in the reference section, and (c) reserve books, which 
are so designated by the instructors, and are kept at the cir- 
culation desk. Some materials are available in microform 
(i.e., microfilm, microcards and microfiche). There are ap- 
proximately 625 journals and newspapers currently received. 
The collection also includes phonograph records, tapes, 
pamphlets and government documents. A microfilm reader- 
printer, microcard reader, microfiche reader and a copying 
machine are available in the library. 



Circulation Policies: 

1. To obtain a library card, it is necessary to present the 
Armstrong I.D. card to the Circulation Desk. The I.D. card 
must be punched for the current quarter. 

2. Reference books and journals whether bound or unbound' 
are for use only within the library. 

3. General books may be borrowed for two weeks. Unless 
another borrower is waiting for a book, it may be renewed 
one time. The date a book is due is stamped on a card 
provided for that purpose in the back of the book. To 
renew a book, it must be brought to the circulation desk 
from which it was borrowed. A student is not permitted 
to have more than five books charged out at any given 
time. 

4. Reserve books are circulated for the length of time recom- 
mended by the instructor. 

5. Phonograph records and tapes, unless otherwise desig- 
nated, circulate for one week. 

Fines. For general books the overdue fine for late returns 
is five cents a day. The fine for reserve books is twenty-five 
cents a day. Overnight reserve books, which are due back in 
the library by 8:30 a.m. the following morning, carry a fine 
of twenty-five cents for the first hour and ten cents for each 
additional hour overdue up to the maximum of one dollar 
per day for each book. The fine for recordings, tapes and 
pamphlets is ten cents per day. 

Fines are not charged to raise funds for the library, but 
are imposed as a means of encouraging the prompt return of 
library materials so that as many as possible may benefit 
from their use. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library materials will 
be charged the price of the item plus 20% of the value to 
cover the cost of correcting the records and processing a re- 
placement copy, plus any overdue fine accrued. If the book 
is found within the school year, the price of the book will be 
refunded but not the service charge or overdue fine. Bor- 
rowers who lose books are advised to notify the library at 
once so that some adjustment may be made in the fine charges 
which accumulate for overdue books. 

14 



Students who owe fines to the library or who have over- 
due books will not receive their quarterly grades, nor will 
they be permitted to register for the next quarter or be given 
transcripts of their records until their account has been cleared. 

Conduct. 

1. Quiet. The library does not function as a place to visit 
with friends. Talking disturbs others and interferes with 
the talker's studying. The library staff cannot permit talk- 
ing, nor can it grimly patrol the reading areas to en- 
force quiet. Students who disregard the regulations on 
talking, or who fail to observe any library regulation 
regarding suitable standards of behavior will be sent out 
of the library and will not be re-admitted without the 
permission of the Dean of Students. 

2. Smoking is permitted in the foyer of the library only. 

3. Food or beverages are not to be brought in to the library 
building. 

4. Stealing books or magazines or willfully mutilating them 
is considered reprehensible practices and students are 
warned that such action can result in permanent suspen- 
sion from the college. 

ACADEMIC HONOR CODE 

The Honor Code as herein printed is currently undergoing 
revision, and a revised code will probably be adopted in 
the 1971-72 academic year. Until changes in the code are 
formally adopted, the current code will serve as the College 
policy on matters of academic dishonesty. 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College provides all 
members of the student body with an opportunity to participate 
in self government. The accompanying responsibilities are 
outlined below. 

The Honor System, written by a joint committee of faculty 
and students, received an overwhelming endorsement by 
both faculty and students during the Winter Quarter, 1965. 

The ordinances of the Honor System are as follows: 

1. All Students must agree to abide by the rules and regu- 
lations of the Honor System. A student shall not be ac- 

15 



cepted at Armstrong State College unless he signs the 
following statement at the time of his first registration: 

"\ have read the regulations governing the Honor System 
at Armstrong State College, and I understand that as a 
student at Armstrong, I must comply with all of these re- 
quirements/' This statement and all rules and regulations 
governing the Honor System shall be printed in the offi- 
cial Bulletin and the Sfudent Handbook. The statement 
shall also be printed on the application form for admis- 
sion to be signed by the student before admission to the 
college. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council to con- 
duct an extensive orientation program at the beginning 
of each quarter for all newly entering students to explain 
fully the requirements of the Honor System and to allow 
full discussion of these regulations. 

The following shall be considered violations of the Honor 
Code: 

A. Academic dishonesty of any kind (giving or receiving 
any unauthorized help on any assignment, test or 
paper. At the beginning of each quarter it shall be 
the responsibility of each teacher to make clear what 
shall be considered unauthorized help in his course.) 

B. Stealing only when related to cheating. 

C. Lying before the Honor Council. 

D. Failure to report a known offense. (Lying or stealing 
in any other cases will be considered disciplinary, not 
Honor, matters.) 

Ways of reporting a violation of the Honor Code: 

A. Self-reporting: A student who has broken the Honor 
Code should report himself to a member of the Honor 
Council. 

B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of 

a violation of the Honor Code must report the matter. 
This may be done in one of two ways: 

16 



1. He may tell the person thought to be guilty to report him- 
self to a member of the Honor Council no later than the 
end of the next school day. After this designated time the 
person who is aware of the violation must inform a mem- 
ber of the Honor Council so that the Honor Council may 
contact the accused person if he has not already reported 
himself. 

2. He may report the suspected violation directly to a mem- 
ber of the Honor Council without informing the accused. 

V. The Honor Council will be composed of nine students. 

A. Selection shall be made by the President, Vice-Presi- 
dent and Secretary of the Student Body, the President 
and Secretary of the Honor Council, together with 
three faculty members appointed by the President of 
the college. Selection shall be based on the following 
requirements: 

1. High moral principles and unquestioned academic integrity 
in all their relations to fellow students, faculty and ad- 
ministrative officials. 

2. A minimum of C+ for the preceding quarter and an over- 
all average of C-f-. Any student not in good standing with 
the college in academic or disciplinary matters is inelig- 
ible to serve on the Honor Council. Any member of the 
Honor Council who falls below these requirements will be 
ineligible to continue his term of service. A replacement 
will not be selected, however, unless the total number of 
students on the Honor Council falls below seven. 

B. The selection committee shall submit a questionnaire to 

those students who meet these requirements. On the 
basis of the questionnaires the committee has the pow- 
er to appoint three seniors, three juniors, and three 
sophomores to serve on the Honor Council. At least 
three committee members shall be women and at least 
three shall be men. This distribution may be altered 
when deemed best by the selection committee. The 
appointments shall be made by the second Tuesday 
in March, and the Council shall assume its duties on 
April 1. 

17 



C. The Honor Council shall elect one of its members to 
serve as President and one as Secretary. The Presi- 
dent shall preside at all meetings and trials, and the 
Secretary shall maintain a written record of all pro- 
ceedings. 

D. During summer school, any member of the Honor 
Council who is attending summer classes will serve on 
the Council for the summer together with other stu- 
dents appointed by the Council and the Dean of Stu- 
dent Affairs. 

V. The Honor Council shall formulate its own bylaws and 
procedure. 

A. An Honor Council meeting shall be called by the Pres- 
ident of the Council to examine a reported violation 
as soon as possible after such a report. When pos- 
sible the meeting of the Council will be held within 
a week of the Violation. 

B. At the meeting the Honor Council will hear the accusa- 
tion, the testimony of any witnesses, and any defense 
the accused may wish to present. 

C. The accused will have the right to hear all witnesses 
and all evidence brought before the Honor Council. 

D. Written notification of the specific charges which, if 
approved, shall be made grounds for suspension or 
dismissal from a class. 

E. The accused will be considered innocent until proved 
guilty. 

F. Every trial shall be conducted by a Council of at least 
seven members, including the President. In the ab- 
sence of the President, the senior justice shall preside. 

G. The Secretary will keep minutes of all meetings. All 
official testimony will be tape recorded, provided that 
the recording devices are under the control of the 
Council. 

18 



H. A vote of two-thirds majority of the members of the 
Honor Council present and voting will be necessary 
for the conviction of the accused. The Council, in the 
event of a verdict of guilty, shall determine the pen- 
alty by majority vote. 

I. The vote will be taken by secret ballot. 

VI. Post-trial Procedure. 

A. Immediately upon conclusion of the trial, the accused 
shall be notified of the findings and of the recom- 
mendation that the Council will make to the President 
of the college. 

B. If the accused is found innocent, he shall be notified 
of the finding and cautioned that the trial may be re- 
opened for good cause by the Council within a period 
of three weeks or at the request of the professor in 
whose course the alleged violation occurred. 

C. If a person is found guilty, the Honor Council will 
recommend to the President of Armstrong State College 
one of the following: 

1. Expulsion from the class and denial of credit in the course 
in which the violation occurred and denial of the posi- 
tion of any elective office. 

2. Suspension from school for any number of quarters (the 
minimum suspension will be for the remainder of the 
quarter in which the violation occurs.) 

3. Expulsion from school. In cases where the accused is 
found guilty, the Honor Council will report in writing, the 
accused, the professor of the class in which the violation 
occurred, and the accusor the decision of the Council. The 
secretary of the Honor Council will then post an official 
notice on the bulletin boards announcing the Council's 
action without mentioning the name of the accused. 

Although the College feels that the above three recom- 
mendations are appropriate for academic dishonesty, it 
also recognizes that unique circumstances may arise. For 
such cases a series of appeals is open to the convicted 

19 



student. He may appeal either the conviction or the pun- 
ishment or both in the following way: 

A. To the President of Armstrong State College in a letter 

B. The President's decision may be appealed to the Boarc 
of Regents of the University System of Georgia. The 
method of appeal is outlined in the Board of Regents 
Policy— Section J-2 which may be found in the library 

VIII. Each student will be required to write on every writ- 
ten assignment, test, or paper a pledge that he has neithei 
given nor received any unauthorized help on this work 
This may be done by writing the word "Pledged" followec 
by the student's signature. 

IX. The Honor System is dependent upon student cooperatior 
and support. It is felt that every student wishes the credil 
for his work to be unquestioned and the college he ha< 
chosen to be respected. 

X. A revision of the Honor System will require a majority vote 
of the faculty and of the student body.

COUNSELING 

The Counseling Office 
provides services design- 
ed to help you deal more 
effectively with both your 
college experiences and 
events thereafter. 

Questions of selecting 
or changing a major, 
studying with results, re- 
solving social or personal 
difficulties, planning for a 
realistic career, adjusting 
to college work are just 
some examples of con- 
cerns to be discussed with 
a professionally trained counselor. Frequently information 
helpful in decision making can be gained from interest and 
personal preference inventories, aptitude, intelligence, or 
achievement tests. 

Often it is desirable to learn more about specific occupa- 
tions, graduate or professional schools. Current catalogs and 
pamphlets are gathered in the Counseling Office and a list 
of references is available. 

Academic advisement is usually conducted by the depart- 
ment of the student's concentration. However, individual course 
advising is available to each student as needed, particularly 
to those who have not yet selected a major. 

Counseling services, assuring personal attention and con- 
fidentiality, are available to all students at no charge. Students 
are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Affairs in 
the Administration Building for assistance. An interview can be 
scheduled at your convenience. 

FINANCIAL AID 

All forms of financial aid are administered through the 
Office of Student Affairs. Students interested in scholarship, 
assistantships, loans, part-time employment, or work-study op- 

21 



portunities should make application in this office. Every effort 
will be made to assist students who desire education but who 
do not have sufficient resources to attend college. The college 
also employs a number of student assistants each year who 
work in various departments on the campus. 

LOST AND FOUND 

The Student Affairs Office in the Administration Building 
and the Office of the Director of Student Activities maintain 
a repository for lost and found articles. Any person finding 
a lost article on campus should turn it in to either of these two 
offices so that it may be claimed by the owner. 

MAROON AND GOLD 

To keep students informed regarding college functions, the 
college publishes a news bulletin, the MAROON AND GOLD, 
every Wednesday. This one- page bulletin contains announce- 
ments and general information relative to college and student 
activities. Any student having information for the MAROON 
AND GOLD may contact the Office of Public Information in the 
Administration Building. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Each student is entitled to one official transcript of his 
college work without charge. Additional copies will be issued 
at $1.00 each. Application for transcripts may be made in 
the office of the Registrar. 

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Each student enrolled at Armstrong State College is issued 
a student identification card. This card is validated at each 
registration and should be carried at all times. 

The student I.D. is required to obtain a library card, to 
use the student discount service, to vote in student elections 
and for entrance to all college related functions. Students 
must also have their I.D. cards in order to receive an annual. 

STUDENT INSURANCE 

A group health and accident insurance policy has been 
designed especially for Armstrong State College Students. The 
fee is only $20.00 for a full year's coverage. This insurance 
may be purchased at registration. For further information 
contact the Office of Student Affairs. 

22 



TELEPHONE REGULATIONS 

Students are called to the telephone only in emergencies. 
Office telephones are not to be used by students. Public tele- 
phones are provided in the Student Union, and the classroom 
buildings. 

ACCIDENTS 

In the event an Armstrong student becomes ill or involved 
in an accident while on campus, the faculty member teaching 
the class in which the accident occurs or the first person on the 
scene should proceed as follows: 

1. Call the switchboard and report the illness or accident 
giving the location on campus. The operator will then 
notify the Campus Nurse and the Office of Student Affairs. 

2. Maintain order, prevent crowds from forming, insure that 
the person is not moved, and keep him as comfortable as 
possible until the nurse arrives. 

3. When the nurse arrives, the following steps will be taken: 

a. The nurse will administer the proper first-aid or 
emergency treatment. 

b. The switchboard will be contacted if an ambulance 
is needed. 

c. The nurse will remain with the injured person until the 
ambulance arrives and accompany the individual to 
the hospital if necessary. 

d. The Office of Student Affairs will attempt to notify the 
parents of the injured or ill student. 

PRESIDENT'S LUNCHEONS 

In an effort to keep the line of communication open as 
well as to provide students with an opportunity to express 
their ideals and opinions, the President of Armstrong State 
College periodically invites students to a Luncheon. At this 
time, matters of common concern are discussed. 

23 



DRESS 

The attire preferred by any given student reflects an ef- 
fort to satisfy a variety of physical and psychological needs. 
The college leaves the matter to the discretion of the student 
in the belief that he will exercise this prerogative wisely and in 
good taste. 

DEAN'S ADVISORY COUNCIL 

The Dean's Advisory Council, initiated by the Dean of 
Student Affairs, gives students an opportunity to meet with 
various administrative officers of the college. The council 
serves to advise the administrative officers of programs and 
activities which relate to students and their welfare. Meetings 
are held once each month and are open to all students. 

MEMORIAL STUDENT CENTER 

The Memorial Student Center is located on Science Drive 
on the South side of the Campus. The Center houses the 
Post Office, the Nurse's Clinic, the cafeteria, the bookstore, 
the offices of Student Government, the Office of the Director 
of Student Activities and conference rooms. Vending ma- 
chines with hot and cold sandwiches and drinks are available 
at reasonable prices in the student center annex. 

Reservations for the use of conference rooms in the student 
center are made through the Office of the Director of Student 
Activities. Arrangements may be made with the cafeteria 
manager to have special dinners and affairs catered. Anyone 
who wishes announcements to have shown on the closed circuit 
television may do so in the Office of the Director of Student 
Activities.

VEHICLE REGULATIONS 

There are three types of decals for automobiles driven 
on campus. Faculty, Senior, and Student decals are available 
at NO COST at registration and throughout each quarter in 
the Student Affairs Office. Students who have completed 
135 hours are entitled to a Senior decal. The number of hours 
must be verified by the Registrar's Office. ALL VEHICLES 
DRIVEN ON CAMPUS MUST HAVE A DECAL. 

PARKING REGULATIONS 

The following is a summary of the traffic regulations which 
are enforced on the Armstrong State College campus. Violators 
will be issued tickets by the security department. All fines 
must be paid to the Security Office in the Maintenance Build- 
ing within 48 hours of the violation. An incremental system 
of fines on a quarterly basis is used for violations. The first 
ticket is $2.00, the second (of a like violation) $4.00, the 
third $8.00, and the fourth and subsequent tickets $12.00. 
Visitors' parking is available on all sides of the campus. 

25 



Students who have unpaid fines at the end of the quarter 
will not be allowed to register for the succeeding quarter 
and grades for the quarter in which the violations occurred will 
be withheld. Transcripts will not be released from the Reg- 
istrar's office until all fines have been cleared. 

1. All Armstrong State College students who drive vehicles 
on campus must secure decals during registration or from 
the Office of Student Affairs during the quarter. Decals 
are to be properly displayed in the appropriate place 
on the automobile. 

2. Students may park in areas designated as student park- 
ing; not in spaces reserved for visitors, seniors, faculty or 
administration. 

3. Automobiles may not be backed into parking spaces. 

4. Students are expected to heed all traffic signs and posted 
speed limits. 

5. Vehicles are not permitted on the grass or sidewalks. 

6. Parking is not permitted at yellow curbs. 

7. An automobile with no decal may be parked in the large 
parking lot on the back of the campus where it will not 
be ticketed. 

TRAFFIC TICKET APPEAL 

A Traffic Court of three students is provided for persons 
wishing to appeal traffic tickets. A ticket must be appealed 
within seven (7) days of the violation. Traffic Court meets 
in the Student Government Office— Room 201— in the New 
Student Center each Monday at 12:30 p.m. If a student is 
unable to attend traffic court, he may pick up the ticket appeal 
form from the Director of Student Activities or from the Stu- 
dent Government Office. 

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY 

Dishonesty in scholastic pursuits is a most serious matter. 
All cases involving scholastic dishonesty will be handled by the 
Student Honor Court. For further information regarding vio- 
lations and the related disciplinary procedure, see the Honor 
Code. 

26 



STUDENT CONDUCT 

The conduct of students on campus, at college sponsored 
affairs or when representing the college in any capacity, must 
meet accepted standards of adult behavior in compliance with 
the Code of Conduct of Armstrong State College and the 
Regents of the University System of Georgia. 

STATEMENT ON DISRUPTIVE AND OBSTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR 

BOARD OF REGENTS 

UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA 

Adopted October, 1968 

The Board of Regents of the University System reaffirms 
its policies to support fully freedom of expression by each 
member of the academic community and to preserve and pro- 
tect the rights and freedom of its faculty members and students 
to engage in debate, discussion, peaceful and non-disruptive 
protest and dissent. The following statement relates specifi- 
cally to the problem described below. It does not change or 
in any way infringe upon the Board's existing policies and 
practices in support of freedom of expression and action. 
Rather, it is considered necessary to combat the ultimate effect 
of irresponsible disruptive and obstructive actions by students 
and faculty which tend to destroy academic freedom and the 
institutional structures through which it operates. 

In recent years a new and serious problem has appeared 
on many college and university campuses in the Nation. 
Some students, faculty members, and others have on occasion 
engaged in demonstrations, sit-ins and other activities that 
have clearly and deliberately interfered with the regular and 
orderly operation of the institution concerned. Typically, these 
actions have been the physical occupation of a building or 
campus area for a protracted period of time or the use or 
display of verbal or written obsceniMes involving indecent or 
disorderly conduct. 

These actions have gone beyond all heretofore recognized 
bounds of meetings for discussion, persuasion, or even protest, 
in that: (1) acquiescence to demands of the demonstrators is 
the condition for dispersal, and (2) the reasonable and written 

27 



directions of institutional officials to disperse have been 
ignored. Such activities thus have become clearly recogniz- 
able as an action of force, operating outside all established 
channels on the campus, including that of intellectual debate 
and persuasion which are at the very heart of education. 

The Board of Regents is deeply concerned by this new prob- 
lem. Under the Constitution of the State of Georgia, under 
all applicable court rulings, and in keeping with the tradition 
of higher education in the United States, the Board is ultimately 
responsible for the orderly operation of the several institu- 
tions of the University System and the preservation of academic 
freedom in these institutions. The Board cannot and will not 
divest itself of this responsibility. 

Of equal or even greater importance, such action of force 
as has been described above destroys the very essence of 
higher education. This essence is found in the unhampered 
freedom to study, investigate, write, speak, and debate on any 
aspect or issue of life. This freedom, which reaches its full 
flowering on college and university campuses, is an essential 
part of American democracy, comparable to the jury system 
of the electoral process. 

For these reasons and in order to respond directly and 
specifically to this new problem, the Board of Regents stipu- 
lates that any student, faculty member, administrator, or em- 
ployee, acting individually or in concert with others, who clearly 
obstructs or disrupts, or attempts to obstruct or disrupt any 
teaching, research, administrative, disciplinary or public service 
activity, or any other activity authorized to be discharged or 
held on campus of the University System of Georgia is consid- 
ered by the Board to have committed an act of gross irrespon- 
sibility and shall be subject to disciplinary procedures, pos- 
sibly resulting in dismissal or termination of employment. 

The Board reaffirms its belief that all segments of the 
academic community are under a strong obligation and have 
a mutual responsibility to protect the campus community from 
disorderly, disruptive or obstructive actions which interfere 
with academic pursuits of teaching, learning, and other campus 
activities.

STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE 

The Student Activity Fee 
of $15.00 per quarter from 
each student enables students 
to enjoy a comprehensive pro- 
gram of outside class activi- 
ties. Payment of this fee en- 
titles students to free admis- 
sion to drama productions 
and to home athletic events. 
Students receive reduced ad- 
mission prices for dances and 
concerts. The INKWELL is 
distributed free weekly. Pay- 
ment of this fee for two quar- 
ters entitles the student to a 
copy of the college annual, 
THE GEECHEE. There is also a monthly film series with first 
run movies shown. Summer students receive two free tickets 
to the annual Luau. 

Disposition of student activity fees is handled by the Stu- 
dent Senate in consultation with the Dean of Student Affairs, 
the Director of Student Activities, and the Comptroller. This 
disposition of funds is based on requests from various recog- 
nized organizations and committees. The following guidelines 
are used by the senate to determine appropriations: 

For an organization to receive activity fees, one of the 
two following criteria must be met. EITHER: 
1. The organization must exist purely to serve or represent 
the student body as a whole. Its programs and opera- 
tions benefit the overall student body and participation 
in the organization must be open to all students. The 

39 




JOE A. BUCK 



organization must not have any racial, religious or ethnic 
ties which might discourage otherwise interested students 
from joining it. The organization cannot have as its pri- 
mary aim service to any special interest group, but must 
rather serve the entire student body. 

2. The organization must be presenting a program which 
satisfies the following three requirements: 

a. The program must be of general benefit to the student 
body and participation in the program must be open 
to all interested students. 

b. The program must be one which the sponsoring or- 
ganization is uniquely able to present or at least one 
which the sponsoring organization is clearly better able 
to present than any other campus organization already 
being funded under criteria No. 1 above. 

c. The program must have sufficient value to warrant its 
funding when compared to other programs satisfying 
the other criteria explained above. 

If an organization requests funding for a program that' 
satisfies the above three requirements then the Finance Com- 
mittee of the Senate recommends funding the program. Of 
course, the Finance Committee reserves the right to review any 
organization at any time in order to insure that the funded 
organization is complying with the guidelines above.

Miss Geechee 1971 
Miss Faith McAlhaney 



Basketball starts in late November with the Geechee Classic 
Basketball Tournament. During winter quarter, there will be 
many home ball games which will be played in the Civic 
Center for the first time this year. Also, 1 1 of the games will 
be televised. Homecoming ceremonies are planned for late 
February. A parade, concert dance, basketball game, and 
the election of Miss Homecoming take place at this annual 
event. 



41 



During Spring quarter, Pioneer Day gives students the 
opportunity to participate in field events, dress in pioneer cos- 
tumes, and enjoy inter-club booths and competitions. This 
spirited day is an annual tradition at Armstrong. The college 
holds its annual Leadership Banquet to honor students chosen 
by the student senate and the Awards committee for their 
outstanding contribution to the college. 

INTRAMURALS 

The intramural program of Armstrong continues to grow. 
The Armstrong "500" bicycle race is an annual event and 
competition is keen in football, volleyball, swimming, basket- 
balr, pingpong, and Softball. The Intramural Council co- 
ordinates all intramural activities. 




42 



INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

Armstrong's participation and reputation in intercollegiate 
athletics has shown steady growth since the college became 
a four-year institution. The growth is most evident in the 
Basketball program. Games with national Olympic teams of 
Mexico and France, playing in the new Savannah Civic Center 
for the first time and an 1 1 game television schedule highlight 
this year's schedule. The prospects also appear greater for 
the other sports, baseball, golf, and cross country. ASC is 
an independent member of the NAIA and the NCAA College 
Division. 



STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
AND ACTIVITIES 

Armstrong State College 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College exist 
as an integral part of the total educational program. They 
have as their purpose to contribute to the social welfare of 
the students as well as to benefit the entire community. Stu- 
dent organizations are organized and managed by students 
and are subject to the regulations of the college. As an integral 
part of the college community, they have certain responsibili- 
ties: effective achievement of the organization's announced 
purposes, appropriate social and community relations, and 
sound business management. Accepted standards of good 
taste shall be observed in the social conduct of such groups. 
Basic democratic operational procedures are expected of all 
student organizations. 

Student organizations are required to have an advisor 
before they can function as recognized organizations of the 
college. 

The Director of Student Activities and faculty advisers are 
available to advise and assist organizations, but the final 
responsibility for performance rests with the members them- 
selves. Failure to abide by Armstrong State College policies 
may result in suspension or termination of the privileges to 
operate. 

43 



Student organizations are responsible for complying with 
the following regulations: 

A. No student organization will be permitted to affiliate 
with any outside group or organization without the 
approval of the President of Armstrong State College. 

B. All student organizations will be under the year-round 
supervision of the college whether the college is in 
session or not. 

C. Meetings of all recognized organizations will be cleared 
through the Director of Student Activities. 

D. Social activities will be limited to Armstrong State 
College students and their dates. 

For infraction of the above standards the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee may, with the approval of the Director of 
Student Activities: 

1. Deny recognition of the group as an organization, pos- 
sibly demanding a forfeiture of charter. 

2. Deny use of college facilities. 

3. Deny social activities for a specified period. 
Social Regulations 

A social function is defined as a dance, party, activity or 
entertainment sponsored by the college or a college-approved 
student group. 

A. Major social functions are college-wide events spon- 
sored through student activity fees and open to all Arm- 
strong State College students. 

B. Special social functions are events sponsored by an 
organization for its membership only or for the entire 
student body. 

C. In addition to the faculty advisers, each organization 
must secure approved chaperons from among the 
faculty. 

D. Student organizations may not hold social functions 
open to the public. This applies to charge and non- 
charge activity. To be eligible for admission to any 

44 



social activity, at least one member of each couple 
must be a college student and present a valid ID card. 
Exceptions to this standard will be made for events

State College Alumni may attend. 

E. Social functions will not be scheduled on the week-end 
prior to final examinations, nor during the week pre- 
ceding final examinations. 

Location 

1. When appropriate, student organizations are urged to use 
college facilities for social functions. 

2. Permission to use the Student Center or other college fa-

from student activity fees will rest with the individual 
organization. Such organizations will present a quarterly 
financial report to the Office of Student Affairs and have 
their financial accounts audited annually by the office 
of the Comptroller. 

2. Organizations which derive operating funds from student 
activity fees must obtain a purchase order from the Di- 
rector of Student Activities prior to withdrawing monies 
from their account.

CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS 

Organization Recognition Procedure 

I. Procedures for submitting an application. 

Organizations seeking approval by the student activities 
committee should adopt the following procedures: 

A. A finished draft of a proposed constitution should be 
submitted to each of the ten (10) members of the 
committee. The draft should embody principles here- 
inafter set forth, should be redacted in an acceptable 
form and should be free of grammatical, spelling, and 
typographical errors. 

B. The draft of the constitution should be accompanied 
by a brief statement incorporating the following: 

1. The names, addresses and telephone numbers of 
two individuals who may be contacted by members 
of the committee and who can be responsible for 
answering questions about the proposed organiza- 
tion and its constitution. 

2. A brief assessment of the interest expressed by po- 
tential members in the formation of the organiza- 
tion, i.e., how much support you think the organi- 
zation, if approved, will get from the student body. 

NOTE 

This statement should be made part of the constitution. 
It should be drafted on a separate page and attached to 

the individual copies of the constitution submitted. 

II. The form and content of the constitution 

In drawing up a constitution the applicants should bear in 
mind that the function of a constitution is to set forth the gen- 
eral ground rules for the conduct of the business of an organi- 
zation. As it constitutes a fixed reference on permanent file 
of these rules, it should be so explicit in those areas which 
it seeks to govern as to leave no doubt as to its meaning, e.g., 
the titles and general duties of the organization's officers and 
the manner, time and procedures for conducting elections. On 
the other hand, the committee suggests that it would be un- 

49 



wise for the constitution to venture into legislative matters best 
left to the determination of easily alterable by-laws which 
can be passed by an enlarged and more representative mem- 
bership. 

A. The constitution should be framed in outline form. 
Because important changes in the policy and leader- 
ship of an organization frequently hinge on consti- 
tutional interpretation, it is strongly suggested that the 
constitution be framed in outline form for easy refer- 
ence. For a convenient outline form the applicants 
should consult an acceptable authority such as the 
MLA Style Book or Kate Turabian's Manual for Writers 
of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations. The com- 
mittee makes the following suggestions respecting form: 

1. Important and distinct topics such as "elections," 
"amendments to the constitution," etc., should be 
designated by Roman Numerals and a topic head- 
ing (e.g., IV Elections). 

2. Distinct sub-topic areas should be treated in sep- 
arate paragraphs which may, but need not neces- 
sarily, be designated by a descending order of 
outline. 

3. The purposes of the committee in making these 
suggestions as form should not be thought of as 
academic arbitrariness. It is sometimes important 
to an organization to be able to make explicit and 
exact references to its constitutional document. The 
form we have suggested is designed to facilitate 
this kind of reference. 

B. There are minimal requirements of the Student Activities 
Committee as to the content of submitted constitutions. 
Without presuming to proscribe the inclusion of other 
topics not listed or to dictate the general order of 
presentation of topics, the Student Activities Commit- 
tee insists that the proposed constitution of any ap- 
plicant organization include explicit provision for the 
following: 

50 



1. Statement of the purposes of the organization. 

2. Provision for choosing a faculty sponsor. 

3. Qualifications for membership. 

4. Titles and duties of officers of the organization. 

5. Elections. In regard to elections the Committee feels 
that it is encumbent upon the proposed organiza- 
tion to make constitutional provision for the follow- 
ing: 

a. Free, open, democratic, and periodic election of 
officers. 

b. Provision for filling interim vacancies of offices. 

6. Funding and financial responsibility. 

a. The constitution must provide for a clear and 
distinct delegation of financial responsibility to 
one or more stipulated officers of the organi- 
zation. 

b. The constitution must provide for the manner of 
assessing the membership for dues. 

c. The constitution must provide for an internal 
audit of the finances of the organization to be 
presented annually for the consideration of its 
membership. 

7. Meetings 

a. The constitution must provide for a minimal 
number of annual meetings of the membership. 

b. The constitution must provide suitable guaran- 
tees that the membership will be given advance 
notice as to the time and place for conducting 
general meetings. 

c. The constitution must provide a means for calling 
special meetings where the situation warrants 
and for notifying the general membership 
thereof. 

51 



8. Quorum for conducting business 

9. The Method of passing by-laws 

10. Committees 

1 1 . Amendment of the constitution 
III. Responsibilities of applicants in making a constitutional 
presentation 

Responsibilities of the Student Activities Committee are 
such that it must confine its attention to the consideration of 
substantive matters. Consequently, the Committee cannot be 
expected to contribute in any way towards putting an or- 
ganization's constitution in proper form. The entire burden 
of producing a constitution in acceptable form rests with the 
applicant organization. This means the constitution, before 
it will be considered by the Committee, must embody the pro- 
visions established by the Committee (above 11-B, 1-11), it 
must be in grammatically acceptable form and it must be 
corrected for spelling and typographical errors. 

FINAL RECOGNITION 

The Student Activities Committee meets with representa- 
tives of each organization desiring recognition by the college. 
After examining the constitution and after consulting the or- 
ganization, the Student Activities Committee votes as to wheth- 
er the organization will be recognized. The President of the 
College has the authority to grant final recognition to an 
organization. 

POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in existence for the purpose of 
providing a place and climate for the orderly process of learn- 
ing. Therefore, the following, which conforms to the policy 
of the University System of Georgia relative to the use of 
campuses, constitutes Armstrong State College's policy for 
the use of the facilities and or campus. 

1. Armstrong State College is state property and is there- 
by open to any citizen desiring to visit. The conduct 
of visitors is expected to conform with regular college 
policies. 

52 



2. Approved and recognized college student and faculty 
organizations may promote any program with any 
featured speaker provided the program is approved by 
the institution in accordance with stated college policy. 
(See POLICY REGARDING THE APPEARANCE OF OUT- 
SIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS OF OFFICIAL ORGANI- 
ZATIONS). 

3. The facilities and campus may not be made available 
for general partisan political activities. 

4. The facilities and campus may not be used by outside 
groups and non-student groups except in conjunction 
with item 2 above. 

5. No activity will be permitted which interferes with the 
normal and orderly educational functions of this college. 

POLICY FOR OUTSIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs and 
activities by all college approved groups, it does have a re- 
sponsibility to insure that public law and order will be main- 
tained and that the policies of the Board of Regents will be 
observed. There is no absolute right to assemble or to make 
or hear a speech at any time or place regardless of the cir- 
cumstances, content of speech, purpose of assembly or prob- 
able consequences of such meeting or speech, or to the issu- 
ance of invitations to outside speakers. Because it does have 
the responsibility to insure that public law and order will be 
maintained, and that the educational activities of the college 
will not be interrupted in a disruptive way, the college reserves 
the right to know of outside guests who appear on a program 
on the campus and to determine any special arrangements or 
accommodations which might be required. 

Therefore, the issuance of invitations to outside speakers 
to use the facilities of the campus to speak to campus groups 
shall be accomplished within the following manner and as set 
forth herein-. 

a. A request to invite an outside speaker will be consid- 
ered only when made by a college recognized student or 
faculty group, such recognition having been authorized by 

53 



the President of the College upon the recommendation of the 
proper committee or authority. 

b. No invitation by such organized groups shall be issued 

to an outside speaker without prior written concurrence by 
the President or the Dean of Student Affairs. 

c. Any speaker request shall be made in writing by an 
officer of the student or faculty organization desiring to spon- 
sor the proposed speaker, not later than ten calendar days 
prior to the date of the proposed speaking engagement. This 
request shall contain the name of the sponsoring organiza- 
tion, the proposed date, time and location of the meeting, the 
expected size of the audience and the topic of speech. Any 
request not acted upon by the President or the Dean of Stu- 
dent Affairs within four working days after submission shall 
be deemed granted. 

d. Where the request for an outside speaker is granted, 
and the speaker accepts the invitation, the sponsoring organi- 
zation shall inform the President or the Dean of Student Af- 
fairs in writing immediately of such acceptance. 

e. In the invitation to, or the advertisement or announce- 
ment of, guest speakers, it should be made clear to the acad- 
emic and larger community that sponsorship does not neces- 
sarily imply approval or endorsement, either by the sponsoring 
group or by Armstrong State College. 

The approval of the use of institutional facilities by the 
college does not necessarily imply that the college or the 
Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approve 
or are in agreement with any of the avocations, policies or 
proposals espoused therein. 

f. Where he considers it to be in the best interest of the 
college, the President or the Dean of Student Affairs may re- 
quire that any meeting be closed to ail persons other than the 
faculty, staff or students of the Armstrong State College. 

g. It shall be the responsibility of the sponsoring group 
to make the proper reservation through the Master Calendar 
Service in the Registrar's office for the use on a particular date 
of any facility when an outside speaker is involved. The Presi- 



54 






dent or the Dean of Student Affairs may, when he considers it 
to be in the best interest of the college, require that the meeting 
be held in a specifically designated part of the campus. Normal- 
ly this would be the area west of the Library and south of the 
Student Center, such area having been designated for this by 
the President of the College upon the recommendation of the 
faculty and the student government. 

h. Where the request for an outside speaker is denied, 
any sponsoring organization thereby aggrieved shall, upon 
written application to the President or the Dean of Student 
Affairs, obtain a hearing within two days following the filing 
of such appeal. The Hearing Committee shall consist of the 
Student Activities Committee, augmented by the Dean of the 
College and the President of the Student Body. Any sponsor- 
ing organization aggrieved by the action of the Hearing Com- 
mittee shall follow the appeals provisions as outlined in the 
policies of the Board of Regents of the University System of 
Georgia. 

It is the policy of the college that the freedoms of 
speech and assembly guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth 
Amendments to the United States Constitution shall be enjoyed 
by the students and faculty of Armstrong State College as re- 
spects the opportunity to hear off-campus or outside speakers 
on the campus. It is not the policy of the college to curtail 
free discussion of subjects of either controversial or non-con- 
troversial nature. The above regulations are set forth to pro- 
tect the college, the students and the faculty, and to insure the 
basic freedoms of speech and assembly. 

POLICY ON STUDENT OFF-CAMPUS MEETING HOUSES 

The Student Activities Committee proposes the following 
policy in respect to the establishment and governance of off- 
campus housing of fraternities, sororities, and other student 
organizations: 

I. Conduct: The Purview of the Student Activities Committee 

Since the Committee recognizes college students as respon- 
sible citizens of their wider communities and as respected 
representatives of the College, it therefore expects their conduct 
in off-campus activities to comply with this trust. The Commit- 

55 



tee is thus loathe to frame a set of rules and regulations ex- 
plicitly setting forth policy adequately encompassed already 
by the laws of our nation, state, county, and city for the guid- 
ance of all citizens. Consequently, the Committee feels the 
following statements, in respect to the conduct of student or- 
ganizations in off-campus houses, should be sufficient. 

A. Alleged violations of the law,- involvement in civil suit; 
or any action, which might be construed as violations 
of criminal statutes or which might be actionable in 
civil suit,- by the members of an organization while 
representing the organization in any capacity, shall 
constitute sufficient ground for the Committee to actively 
intervene in order to ascertain for itself the facts of the 
case. In no event is such an intervention to be taken 
as a prejudgment of student wrongdoing by the Com- 
mittee. Students should recognize, however, that any 
involvement of a College-sponsored organization in 
the criminal or civil courts, or any action that might 
lead to such a situation, will inevitably reflect on the 
reputation and on the policies of the College. In such 
event, the College is, ipso facto, an interested party. 

B. Officers or members of an organization appearing be- 
fore the Student Activities Committee, or any duly 
constituted faculty or administrative body of the Col- 
lege, to respond to allegations of wrongdoing which, 
in the event of an affirmative finding, might constitute 
grounds for disciplinary action shall have secured to 
them those procedural guarantees promulgated by the 
College for the governance of College bodies investi- 
gating the wrongdoing of individual college students. 

II. Conduct: The Responsibilities of College-Affiliated 
Organizations Having Off-Campus Houses 

Applicant organizations will recognize the time honored 
principle that the obverse side of freedom is responsibility. 
We expect members of these organizations to act as respon- 
sible citizens. For the preservation of their good citizen stand- 
ing, the Committee delegates first and primary responsibility 
to the organizations themselves. To this end we promulgate 
the following guidelines: 

56 



A. Applicant organizations must show evidence to the 
Committee that they have established adequate 
machinery for dealing with possible internal disciplin- 
ary problems. 

B. Officers and members of organizations have the obli- 
gation to bring to the attention of the relevant College 
officials any situations which might seriously compro- 
mise the good reputation of the organization and/or 
the College. Students are asked to exercise sound 
judgment in recognizing for themselves when situa- 
tions which may develop are of such a serious nature 
that they cannot be adjudicated properly within the 
mechanisms of the organization itself. 

C. The faculty sponsor or an adult approved by the Of- 
fice of Student Affairs shall be present at all meet- 
ings and social functions of the organization. When 
social functions are open to the student body, alumni, 
etc., the organization will consult with the Office of 
Student Affairs for advice on whether supervision by 
police officers is necessary. 

D. Hazing, for any reason, shall be prohibited as an 
aspect of organization activity. 

E. Organizations shall make available to the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee for permanent filing an updated copy 
of their full house rules. 

III. Financial Responsibility 

An applicant organization must demonstrate financial 
competence to meet the recurrent obligations of maintaining 
the premises they occupy. The organization must in addition 
show competence to meet a reasonable amount of emergency 
financial obligations usually attendant on householding. To 
these ends the Committee promulgates the following guidelines: 

A. Competence to meet financial obligations cannot be 
projected on the basis of expected revenues from mem- 
bership dues or other sources. In the opinion of the 
Committee the only feasible way such warranty of 
financial responsibility can be assured is by having 

57 



an economically secure individual from the commun- 
ity, or a board made up of such individuals, assume 
responsibility for all of the organizations 7 obligations. 

B. It is expected that the financial affairs or organizations 
will be on a cash or, at most, a regular thirty day bill- 
ing basis. Decisions by organizations to enter long- 
term credit obligations must be submitted to the Com- 
mittee for approval. 

C. Organizations must have their off-campus premises 
fully and adequately insured for liability. 

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT 

STUDENT CONDUCT PROGRAM 

ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE 

(As Approved By The Board of Regents, June 1969) 

I. THE CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT 
A. General Policies 

1. The College is dedicated not only to learning and the 
advancement of knowledge, but also to the develop- 
ment of ethically sensitive and responsible persons. It 
seeks to achieve these goals through a sound educa- 
tional program and policies governing student conduct 
that encourage independence and maturity. 

2. The College distinguishes its responsibility for student 
conduct from the control functions of the community. 
When a student has been apprehended for the violation 
of a law of the community, the state, or the nation, the 
College will not request or agree to special considera- 
tion for the student because of his status as a student. 
The College will cooperate, however, with law enforce- 
ment agencies, and with other agencies in any program 
for the rehabilitation of the student. 

3. The College may apply sanctions or take other appro- 
priate action only when student conduct directly and 
significantly interferes with the College's (a) primary 
educational responsibility or ensuring the opportunity 

58 






of all members of the College community to attain their 
educational objectives, or (b) subsidiary responsibili- 
ties of protecting property, keeping records, providing 
services, and sponsoring non-classroom activities such 
as lectures, concerts, athletic events, and social func- 
tions. 

4. Students are subject to the separate provisions of the 
Armstrong State College Honor Code, violations of 
which are not set forth in Section C below. The first 
hearing on violations of the Honor Code shall be before 
the Honor Council in accordance with the provisions 
of the Honor Code. 

5. Procedural fairness is basic to the proper enforcement 
of all College rules. In particular, no disciplinary sanc- 
tion as serious as expulsion, suspension, disciplinary 
probation, or entry of an adverse notation on any per- 
manent record available to persons outside the Col- 
lege shall be imposed unless the student has been noti- 
fied in writing of the charges against him and has 
had an opportunity (a) to appear alone or with any 
other persons to advise and assist him before an ap- 
propriate committee, court, or official, (b) to know the 
nature and source of the evidence against him and to 
present evidence in his own behalf, and (c) to have 
his case reviewed in accordance with Part II, Paragraph 
C below. 

6. Students shall have an opportunity to participate in 
the formation of all policies and rules pertaining to 
student conduct and in the enforcement of all such 
rules. 

7. No disciplinary action shall be imposed on a student 
by or in the name of the College except in accordance 
with this Code or the Honor Code, whichever shall 
apply. 

Sanctions 

1. Sanctions which may be imposed for the commission 
of college offenses shall include the following: 

(a) Expulsion from the College. Expulsion means per- 
manent separation from the College. 

59 



(b) Suspension from the College for a definite or in- 
definite period of time. Suspension means invol- 
untary disenrollment and/or withdrawal of the 
privilege of enrollment. 

(c) Disciplinary probation with or without loss of desig- 
nated privileges for a definite period of time. The 
violation of the terms of the disciplinary probation 
or the infraction of any college rule during the 
period of disciplinary probation may be grounds 
for suspension or expulsion from the College. The 
parents of any student under 21 years of age who 
is placed on disciplinary probation, suspended, or 
expelled shall be notified. 

(d) Social probation with loss of such specified privi- 
leges as may be consistent with the offense commit- 
ted. The loss of privileges shall be for a definite 
period of time. 

(e) Reprimand. A written rebuke, of which a record 
will be retained in the student's file so long as he 
remains at Armstrong, but which will not be for- 
warded to any other college or employer. 

(f) Admonition and warning. 

2. The sanctions of expulsion or suspension ordinarily shall 
be imposed only upon the recommendation of the Stu- 
dent Court. In extraordinary circumstances, where gross 
violations of conduct rules are disrupting the proper 
functioning of the College, students may be summarily 
suspended by the Dean of Student Affairs. Appeal 
from such suspension may be made in accordance 
with Part II, Paragraph C, Appeal Procedures, below. 

C. Violations 

1. Expulsion or suspension from the College or any lesser 
sanction may result from the commission of any of the 
following offenses: 

(a) Conduct which is in violation of federal, state or 
local laws which was committed on campus, or 
which involves college property or which is against 
members of the College community acting in their 
official capacity. 

60 






(b) Violations of published Policies of the Board of 
Regents of the University System of Georgia, a copy 
which shall be on reserve in the library. 

(c) Participation in any hazing-like act, physical or 
mental, perpetrated for the purpose of submitting 
a student to physical pain, discomfort, indignity, or 
humiliation at any time or any place. 

(d) Forgery, alteration, destruction, or misuse of col- 
lege documents, records, or identification cards, or 
furnishing false information to the College with 
intent to deceive, or possession of fire arms. 

(e) Reproducing or unauthorized possession of keys to 
any college facility or entering any college facility 
without proper authority. 

(f) Malicious destruction, damage, or misuse of college 
property, including library materials, or of private 
property on the campus. 

(g) Direct disobedience of orders given by a college 
official who has identified himself and is acting 
within his authority. This would include failure to 
present, within a reasonable amount of time, the 
College identification card. 

(h) Two or more (or the repetition of) offenses listed 
in paragraph below. 

2. Disciplinary probation or any lesser sanction may re- 
sult from the commission of any of the following 
offenses: 

(a) Failure to comply with Georgia law concerning the 
use, possession, or consumption of alcoholic bever- 
ages. This would include all on-campus activities 
and those off-campus activities paid for out of Stu- 
dent Activity Funds. 

(b) Disorderly conduct on campus or at off-campus af- 
fairs financed by Student Activity Funds. 

61 



(c) Violation of any college rule, subsequently promul- 
gated by the College for the infraction of which 
sanctions may be imposed under this Code. All 
such rules shall be in writing and shall be published 
and posted on the official College Bulletin Board 
in such manner as to furnish adequate notice oi 
their contents to students affected by such rules. 
The College's failure to comply with this require- 
ment shall be a complete defense to any charge 
of violation of a rule of which the student has no 
actual knowledge. A student's failure to familiarize 
himself with published rules shall not be an ade- 
quate defense. 

D. Group Offenses 

1. Living organizations, societies, clubs, and similar or- 
ganized groups are responsible for compliance with 
college regulations. Upon satisfactory proof that the 
group has encouraged, or did not take reasonable steps 
as a group, to prevent violations of college regula- 
tions, the group may be subjected to permanent or 
temporary suspension of charter, social probation, de- 
nial of use of college facilities, or other like sanctions. 

2. The determination that a group is liable to sanction 
under the foregoing Section 1, and of the sanction to 
be imposed, shall be made by the Student Activities 
Committee at a hearing held for that purpose. The 
president or principal officer of the group must be 
given reasonable notice of the time and place of said 
hearing and of the nature of the charges. He or any 
other member of the group is entitled to attend and 
be heard at the hearing. 

3. Nothing herein authorizes the imposition of individual 
sanctions on any person other than in accordance with 
the Code of Student Conduct. 

E. The Student Conduct Committee 

1. The Student Conduct Committee shall be responsible 
to the faculty and the President of the College for rec- 
ommending policies relating to student conduct, for 
formulating or approving rules and enforcement pro- 

62 



cedures within the framework of existing policies, and 
for recommending to the President of the College 
changes in the administration of any aspect of the stu- 
dent-conduct program. 

2. The Committee shall consist of four teaching faculty 
members, the Dean of Student Affairs, and four student 
members, one representing each class. The faculty 
members shall be appointed by the faculty in accord- 
ance with the faculty by- laws. The student members 
shall be appointed by the Student Senate. Each mem- 
ber shall serve for a period of one year. Members of 
the Committee may be reappointed and replacement 
members may be appointed at such time as is necessary 
to assure full membership of the committee. The Presi- 
dent of the College may appoint temporary members 
of the Committee to serve during the summer term. A 
chairman, a vice-chairman, and a secretary shall be 
elected at the first meeting of the committee. 

3. The Dean of Student Affairs shall assist the Committee 
in the development of policy and in the discharge of 
its responsibilities. He shall coordinate the activities 
of all officials, committees, student groups, and trib- 
unals responsible for student conduct. 

4. All regulations or rules relating to student conduct that 
are proposed by any college official, committee or stu- 
dent group, and for which sanctions may be imposed 
in the name of the College, must be submitted to the 
Committee for consideration and review prior to sub- 
mission to the faculty. 

The Student Court 

1. The Student Court shall be composed of eight stu- 
dents, two representing each class. Four of the mem- 
bers shall be the Vice-President of the respective classes. 
The remaining four members shall be appointed by the 
Student Senate. Any student not in good standing with 
the College in academic or disciplinary matters shall 
be ineligible to serve on the Student Court. The Court 
shall elect a chairman, a vice-chairman, and a recorder 

63 



from its membership. A faculty adviser shall be ap- 
pointed by the faculty from among three nominations 
made by the Student Court. 

2. A quorum of the Court shall consist of five members. A 
decision that a student has committed an offense re- 
quires an affirmative vote of three-fifths of the mem- 
bers of the Court deciding the case. Sanctions of sus- 
pension or expulsion may likewise be imposed only by 
three-fifths of such members. Sanctions of lesser sever- 
ity than suspension or expulsion shall be made by 
majority vote. 

3. A written copy of the Court's decision shall be given 
to the student concerned. The decision shall advise 
the student of his rights to appeal. 

4. The Court may impose any authorized sanction which 
is warranted by the circumstances of the case. 

5. If overt intimidation of the Student Court is established, 
the President of the College will refer the case involved 
to the Student Conduct Committee for processing. 

Amendments to the above Code may be proposed by the 
Student Senate, and the Student Senate shall be given an 
opportunity to review all amendments proposed by the faculty. 
Amendments will be effective when approved by a three-fifths 
vote of the faculty and of the student body. 

G. Board of Regents' Policy as Final Authority 

None of the regulations and procedures herein contained 
shall be in conflict with policies of the Board of Regents 
of the Georgia University System. Policies of the Board of 
Regents shall be governing in all student conduct matters. 

II. The Administration of the Code 

A. General Procedures 

1. All violations of the Code will be immediately reported 
to the Dean of Student Affairs by any person who has 
knowledge of the commission of any such violation. 

64 



2. The Dean of Student Affairs shall insure that the best 
interests of any offending student are served, regardless 
of whether disciplinary action is taken, by making sure 
that the student is advised of his rights. 

3. Where sufficient evidence exists that a violation of 
law has occurred, the Dean of Student Affairs shall 
refer the case and transmit the evidence to the ap- 
propriate law enforcement agency. 

4. Where the evidence establishes to his satisfaction that 
a college offense has occurred, the Dean of Student 
Affairs shall advise the student of the charges against 
him and ask the student if he prefers to have the of- 
fense handled administratively or to have the case 
referred to the Student Court for hearing. If the stu- 
dent prefers that the case not be referred to the Stu- 
dent Court, he will be required to sign a waiver of his 
right to a hearing before the Student Court. 

B. The Student Court 

1 . Any student whose case is referred to the Student Court 
shall be notified of such referral in writing by the Dean 
of Student Affairs at least three days before the hear- 
ing and shall be apprised in the notice of the charges 
against him. During the hearing the student shall have 
the opportunity (a) to appear in person and/or with 
counsel, (b) to know the evidence against him, and (c) 
to call witnesses and to present evidence and argu- 
ment in his behalf. In the resolution of factual dis- 
putes, the court will request the testimony of witnesses 
and otherwise seek the best evidence obtainable. 

2. The Court shall be convened by its presiding officer 
to consider the evidence of a reported violation as 
soon as reasonably possible after the accused has had 
the required three days notice. 

3. A record shall be made of each witness's testimony. 

4. Immediately upon conclusion of a hearing, the student 
concerned shall be notified of the findings and recom- 
mendation that the court will make to the President of 
the College and of his right to appeal. 

65 



C. Appeal Procedures 

1. The student shall have the right to appeal from any 
sanction. 

2. The Student Court when initially recommending a sanc- 
tion shall advise the student, in writing, of his right to 
appeal to the President of the College. The student 
shall have five days from the receipt of such advice to 
render his appeal to the President, who shall refer it 
to a committee in accordance with Board of Regents 7 
Policy. 

3. Appeal from decisions of the President of the College 
may be made to the Board of Regents of the Univer- 
sity System under the Board of Regents' stated Policy.

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Armstrong State College was founded on May 27, 1935, as 
Armstrong Junior College, by the Mayor and Aldermen of the 
City of Savannah to meet a long felt need for a college in the 
community. The college was housed in the Armstrong building, 
a gift to the city from the family of George F. Armstrong. Over 
the years, five more buildings were constructed or acquired in 
the neighborhood of Forsyth Park and Monterey Square. 

The college, as Armstrong College of Savannah, became a 
two year unit of the University System of Georgia on January 1, 
1959, under the control of the Regents of the University System. 

In 1962, the Mills B. Lane Foundation purchased a new cam- 
pus site of over 200 acres which had been selected by the 
Regents. The new campus, with seven buildings, was occupied 
in December 1965. 

In 1964, Armstrong was made a four year institution and 
became Armstrong State College. In 1971, graduate studies 
were added in cooperation with Savannah State College. The 
college is fully accredited by the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools. Armstrong offers the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Business Ad- 
ministration, Master of Education and Master of Business Ad- 
ministration. 




ACADEMIC 
INFORMATION 
AND POLICIES 



DR. H. D. PROPST 
Dean of the College 

The following information is a summary of academic in- 
irmation provided in the College Bulletin. This information is 
Dt intended to be complete and should not be relied upon as 
nal authority for information affecting your standing in College. 
or complete information see the College Bulletin or the proper 
jministrative official. 

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

A student enrolled as a fulltime student at Armstrong has 
ie privilege of taking at least one course with his Dean's ap- 
'oval at Savannah State without paying an additional fee. A 
udent may obtain from the Registrar's Office the proper form 
»r permission to register at Savannah State College. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Persons who apply to audit courses will not be required to 
,ke The Scholastic Aptitude Test but must meet all other re- 
jirements for admission and pay all regular fees. 

A special form for permission to audit courses may be ob- 
lined from the Admissions Office. Students enrolled on a 
illtime credit basis and desiring to change from credit status to 
jdit status must have the permission of the instructor. No 
iange may be made after the seventh class meeting. 



COURSE LOAD 

A student's course load is determined by the number of 
quarter hours in which he is enrolled. For example, a student 
enrolled in a five hour course would meet this class one hour a 
day, five days a week, for the entire quarter. Evening classes 
and lab courses would vary slightly from this pattern. 

The average student load is 16-18 hours per quarter. As a 
general rule, students should expect to spend two hours in study 
for every hour in class. 

Permission to enroll for more than 18 quarter hours will be 
granted by the Registrar to the student: 

a) with an average grade of B for the preceding quarter, 
or 

b) in an engineering program 

c) requiring an extra course in one of the last two quarters 
prior to graduation 

No student will be allowed to register for more than 21 quar- 
ter hours in any one quarter. 

A student who is employed full-time will be restricted to a 
maximum of 1 1 hours unless he has better than a "B" average in 
the last quarter for which grades are available. 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The control of student attendance at class meetings and the 
effect of a student's attendance on his grades in a course is left 
entirely to the discretion of the instructor. 

A student is responsible for knowing everything that is an- 
nounced, discussed, or lectured upon in class as well as 
mastering all assigned reading; he is also responsible for 
turning in on time all assignments and tests, including recitation 
and unannounced quizzes. The best way to meet these re- 
sponsibilities is to attend classes regularly. An instructor may 

8 



drop a student from any class with a grade of 'WF' if he thinks 
that excessive absence prevents that student from satis- 
factorily fulfilling his responsibilities. If any excessive ab- 
sence is the result of prolonged illness, death in the family, 
ollege business, or religious holidays, the withdrawal grade, 
^ill either be 'W or 'WF' depending on the student's status at 
fhe time he is dropped. Each instructor will be responsible for 
informing classes on their meeting what constitutes excessive 
absence in that particular class. Each student is responsible for 
knowing the attendance regulation in his class and for com- 
plying with it. 



DROPPING COURSES 

A student desiring to drop a course after the quarter has 
oegun must obtain a Drop-Add Notice in the Registrar's Office. 
[The notice must be signed by the instructor of the course being 
dropped and returned by the student to the Registrar's Office. 

A student who drops a course not more than seven class 
days after the course begins will receive no grade for the 
bourse. A student who drops a course after the first seven class 
days and before the last eight class days, will receive a grade of 
*'W" or "F" depending on his status in the course. A student may 
not voluntarily drop a course during the last eight class days of 
I quarter. 

CHANGE OF CLASS 

Once a student is registered, a change in classes will not 
be made unless there is a legitimate reason. If changes are 
necessary, a student should have a Drop-Add notice approved 
in the Student Affairs Office. A charge of $2.00 per course is 
made for any change after registration unless the change is 
initiated by the college. This fee is not refundable and is 
payable to the Business Office. 

WITHDRAWING FROM COLLEGE 

Any student who finds it necessary to withdraw from college 
must begin the process in the Student Affairs Office. A formal 
withdrawal is required to insure that the student is eligible to 



return to Armstrong State College. Any refund to which a 
student is entitled will be considered from the date which ap- 
pears on the withdrawal form. 

GRADES 

All grade reports are mailed directly to the student. 
Students doing unsatisfactory work (D-F) will receive a mid- 
term report. The following system of grading is used at Arm- 
strong State College: 



Grade 






Honor Points

COMPUTING GRADE POINT AVERAGE 



A student's quarterly honor point average is computed by 
dividing the number of hours for which he is enrolled (attempted 
hours) into the total points received. Ws are excluded from this 
computation, but WF's and F's are considered. A student's 
overall average is computed by dividing the total hours at- 
tempted into the total honor points earned while enrolled.

CHANGE OF GRADES 

Once grades have been submitted to the Registrar's Office, 
they become final. An "I" grade which has not been removed by 
the middle of the next quarter automatically becomes an "F". 

REVIEW PROCEDURE-STUDENT COMPLAINTS 
ABOUT GRADES: 

A student who charges that he has been graded unfairly in 
a course will have the following line of appeal: 

1. The student will discuss his/her complaint with the in- 
structor involved. 

2. The Department Head will meet with the student and the in- 
structor in an attempt to resolve the difficulty. A "memoran- 
dum for record" will be prepared which will include the sub- 
stance of the conversations during the meeting. 

3. If the difficulty remains unresolved, a departmental review 
board will be appointed by the Department Head to hear the 
student's appeal. 

a. There will be three members of this board, including the 

Department Head, who will serve as chairman. 

b. The instructor involved will not be a member of this 

board. 

c. In small departments, the membership of the board may 

come from outside the department. 

d. If the charge of unfair grading is made against a Depart- 

ment Head, the review board will be appointed by the 
Dean of the College, who will serve as its chairman. 

e. The review board shall hear statements from both the 

student and the instructor involved and will examine 
documents that are pertinent to the matter under 
review. 

f. A record will be kept of the review board's proceedings. 

g. The findings of the review board will be reported to the 

President, along with a recommendation. 

4. The President will make the final on-campus ruling on the 
matter. 

11 



5. The student will have the right of appeal beyond the 
president to the Board of Regents. 

The majority of complaints about grades should be resolved 
no later than step two in the above procedure. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

A student failing to maintain the grade point average in- 
dicated for quarter hours attempted will be placed on academic 
probation:

and

The academic status of students who have attended other 
institutions will be determined by using only work attempted at 
Armstrong State College in computing the grade point average. 

The minimum grade point average required of such 
students must correspond to the total quarter hours attempted at 
Armstrong and elsewhere as presented in the preceding chart. 
Any student whose grade point average drops below these 
minimums will be placed on academic probation. 

A student on academic probation must (1) at the completion 
of the next 15 quarter hours, achieve the cumulative grade point 
average required for quarter hours attempted, or (2) at the com- 
pletion of the next 15 quarter hours, achieve at least a "C" (2.0) 
average for these 15 quarter hours and for each successive 13 
quarter hours attempted until he achieves the cumulative grade 
point average required in the preceding table. 

There will be no minimum number of the academic quarter 

12 



hours required for individuals who are on scholastic probation. 

Failing to meet these requirements, a student will be 
dismissed from the college for one quarter. A third such 
academic dismissal will be final. 



APPEALS FOR ACADEMIC DISMISSALS 

A student dismissed for academic reasons may appeal by 
letter to the President, who will refer the appeal to the Com- 
mittee on Academic Standing. Such letter of appeal should state 
the nature of any extenuating circumstances relating to the 
academic deficiency. The letter must be received by the 
President no later than 9:00 a.m. of Registration Day, but earlier 
submission of appeals is advised.

LANE LIBRARY 

The Lane Library occupies a central location on the cam- 
pus. The building is air-conditioned, fully carpeted and equip- 
ped with furniture of the highest quality. A reading room and in- 
dividual carrel desks are available on both floors. The current 
periodical and newspaper room is on the first floor. Group study 
rooms (for use by assignment only) are located on the second 
floor. 

Hours. The schedule of library hours is posted on the bulletin 
board in the foyer of the library and also on the outside door of 
the entrance. 

Resources. The collection consists of about 78,000 cataloged 
volumes. Most of the books belong to one of three categories: 
(a) general circulating books, (b) reference books which have 
"Ref." at the top of the call number and are shelved in the 
reference section, and (c) reserve books, which are so 
designated by the instructors, and are kept at the circulation 
desk. Some materials are available in microform (i.e., microfilm, 
microcards and microfiche). There are approximately 725 jour- 
nals and newspapers currently received. The collection also in- 
cludes phonograph records, tapes, pamphlets and government 
documents. A microfilm reader-printer, microcard reader, 
microfiche reader and copying machines are available in the 
library. 

Circulation Policies: 

1. To obtain a library card, it is necessary to present the Arm- 
strong I.D. card to the Circulation Desk. The I.D. card must 
be punched for the current quarter. 

2. Reference books and journals (whether bound or unbound) 
are for use only within the library. 

3. General books may be borrowed for two weeks. Unless 
another borrower is waiting for a book, it may be renewed 
one time. The date a book is due is stamped on a card 
provided for that purpose in the back of the book. To renew 
a book, it must be brought to the circulation desk from 
which it was borrowed. A student is not permitted to have 
more than five books charged out at any given time. 

15 



4. Reserve books are circulated for the length of time recom- 
mended by the instructor. 

5. Phonograph records and tapes, unless otherwise des- 
ignated, circulate for one week. 

Fines. For general books the overdue fine for late returns is 
five cents a day. The fine for reserve books is twenty-five cents 
a day. Overnight reserve books, which are due back in the 
library by 8:30 a.m. the following morning, carry a fine of twenty- 
five cents for the first hour and ten cents for each additional 
hour overdue up to the maximum of one dollar per day for each 
book. The fine for recordings, tapes and pamphlets is ten cents 
per day. 

Fines are not charged to raise funds for the library, but are 
imposed as a means of encouraging the prompt return of library 
materials so that as many as possible may benefit from their 
use. 

Borrowers who lose books or other library materials will be 
charged the price of the item plus 20% of the value to cover the 
cost of correcting the records and processing a replacement 
copy, plus any overdue fine accrued. If the book is found within 
the school year, the price of the book will be refunded but not 
the service charge or overdue fine. Borrowers who lose books 
are advised to notify the library at once so that some adjustment 
may be made in the fine charges which accumulate for overdue 
books. 

Students who owe fines to the library or who have overdue 
books will not receive their quarterly grades, nor will they be 
permitted to register for the next quarter or be given transcripts 
of their records until their account has been cleared. 

Conduct. 

1. Quiet. The library does not function as a place to visit with 
friends. Talking disturbs others and interferes with the 
talker's studying. The library staff cannot permit talking, nor 
can it grimly patrol the reading areas to enforce quiet. 
Students who disregard the regulations on talking, or who 
fail to observe any library regulation regarding suitable 

16 



standards of behavior will be sent out of the library and will 
not be re-admitted without the permission of the Dean of 
Students. 

2. Smoking is permitted in the foyer of the library only. 

3. Food or beverages are not to be brought in to the library 
building. 

4. Stealing books or magazines or willfully mutilating them is 
considered reprehensible practices and students are 
warned that such action can result in permanent suspen- 
sion from the college.

ACADEMIC HONOR CODE 

The Honor System at Armstrong State College is one of the 
provisions by which students participate in the conduct of 
college affairs. The responsibilities of students are outlined in 
the Honor Code. The Honor Code was originally written by a 
joint committee of faculty and students and was endorsed by 
both faculty and students in the Winter Quarter, 1965. The Honor 
Code was revised by another joint faculty-student committee, 
and this revised code was approved by faculty and students in 
Fall Quarter, 1971 . For a listing of members of the Honor Council 
see page 36. 

HONOR CODE 

The Honor Code at Armstrong State College is dedicated to 
the proposition that the protection of the grading system is in 
the interest of the student community. The Honor Council is an 
institutional means to assure that the student community shall 
have primary disposition of infractions of the Honor Code and 
that students accused of such infractions shall enjoy those 
procedural guarantees traditionally considered essential to a 
fair and impartial hearing, the foremost of which is the presump- 
tion of innocence until guilt be established beyond a reasonable 
doubt. 

I. Responsibilities of Students: 

All students must agree to abide by the rules of the Honor 
Code. A student shall not be accepted at Armstrong State 
College unless he signs the following statement at the time 
of his first registration: "I have read the Honor Code of Arm- 
strong State College. I understand the Code and agree that 
as a student at Armstrong, I must comply with these 
requirements." This statement shall be printed on the ap- 
plication for admission to the College and must be signed 
by the student. The Honor Code shall be printed in the of- 
ficial Bulletin and the Student Handbook. 

It will be the responsibility of the Honor Council or its 
designated representative to conduct an orientation 
program at the beginning of each quarter for all newly en- 

18 



tering students to explain fully the Honor Code and to allow 
full discussion of its requirements. 

Any student desiring assistance with any matter related to 
the Honor Code is invited to seek assistance in the Office of 
Student Affairs. 



I. Violations of the Honor Code: 

Violations of the Honor Code may be of two kinds: (a) 
general and (b) those related to the peculiarities of specific 
course-related problems and to the understanding of in- 
dividual instructors. Any instructor whose conception of 
cheating would tend to enlarge or contract the general 
regulations defining cheating must explicitly notify the af- 
fected students of the qualifications to the general 
regulations which he wishes to stipulate. The following will 
be considered general violations of the Honor Code: 

1. Giving or receiving any unauthorized help on any assign- 
ment, test or paper. The meaning of "unauthorized help" 
shall be made clear by the instructor of each class. 

2. Stealing when related to cheating. 

3. Plagiarizing. 

4. Giving perjured testimony before the Honor Council. 

5. Suborning, attempting to suborn, or intimidating witnesses. 

6. Failing to report a suspected violation of the Honor Code. 

II. Reporting Violations of the Honor Code: 

Anyone wishing to report a violation may come to the Office 
of Student Affairs for assistance in contacting members of 
the Honor Council. 

A. Self-reporting: A student who has broken the Honor 
Code should report himself to a member of the Honor 
Council. 

19 



B. Anyone (faculty member or student) who is aware of a 
violation of the Honor Code must report the matter. 
This may be done in one of two ways. 

1. He may tell the person thought to be guilty to report himself 
to a member of the Honor Council no later than the end of 
the next school day. After this designated time, the person 
who is aware of the violation must inform a member of the 
Honor Council so that the Honor Council may contact the 
accused person if he has not already reported himself. 

2. He may report the suspected violation directly to a member 
of the Honor Council without informing the accused. 

IV. The procedural rights of students accused of violations of 
the Honor Code: 

The essence of the procedural rights of an accused is the 
right to a fair and impartial hearing and the right to be 
presumed innocent until proven guilty. Specific rights are 
as follows: 

1. Honor Council members shall examine their consciences 
carefully to determine whether they can, in good con- 
science, serve on a panel hearing a particular case, and, in 
the event that there is any doubt whatsoever, such members 
will excuse themselves from duty on the specific panel in 
question. 

2. The accused will be notified in writing by the Honor Council 
or its designated representative of the nature and details of 
the offense with which he is charged along with the names 
of his accusers and the principal witnesses to be brought 
against him. This notification shall occur no less than three 
class days prior to the date of the hearing. 

3. The accused has the right to counsel of his own choosing. 
Such counsel will not participate directly in the 
proceedings except to advise his client. It is expected that 
such counsel will be drawn from the college community. 

4. The accused and the person bringing the charges shall be 
afforded an opportunity to present witnesses and documen- 

20 



tary or other evidence. The accused and any individual 
bringing the charges shall have the right to cross examine 
all witnesses and may, where the witnesses cannot appear 
because of illness or other cause acceptable to the Council, 
present the sworn statement of the witnesses. The Council 
shall not be bound by formal rules governing the presen- 
tation of evidence, and it may consider any evidence 
presented which is of probative value in the case. 

5. The accused may not be made to bear witness against him- 
self. The Council may not take the refusal of accused to 
testify as evidence of guilt, but this proviso does not give 
the accused immunity from a hearing or from recom- 
mendations reached in a hearing simply because the ac- 
cused does not testify. 

6. The accused shall have access to a complete audiotape of 
the hearing and to the record prepared by the secretary. 

7. The substantive facts of a case may be reopened for con- 
sideration upon initiation of the accused acting through 
normal appeal channels. The accused shall not be put in 
double jeopardy. 

8. All witnesses will be sequestered from the hearing room 
during the course of a hearing. Witnesses may not discuss 
a pending case. 

9. By prior agreement, the accused will be allowed such ob- 
servers of the hearing as may be commensurate with the 
space available. Otherwise, in the interests of the right of 
privacy of the accused, hearings will be private, except that 
the College may also have observers additional to the ad- 
visors to the Honor Council. 



V. Composition and Formation of the Honor Council and The 
Honor Code Commission: 

The Honor Council will be composed of twelve students; 
three of whom shall be designated by the Honor Code Com- 
mission as alternates who will serve in the place of regular 
members unable to serve at a given hearing. 

21 



A. Honor Council members will be selected by an Honor 
Code Commission which shall consist of the 
President, Vice-President and Secretary of the Student 
Body and the current President and Secretary of the 
Honor Council together with three faculty members 
appointed by the President of the College. In order to 
conduct business, the Commission must have present 
at least three of its five student members, one of which 
must be an Honor Council officer, and two of its three 
faculty members. 

B. The Commission will give due consideration to 
equitable apportionment of Council members on the 
basis of academic class, race, and sex. Students on 
academic probation may not serve. All appointments 
will be issued and accepted in writing. Appointments 
will be made during Spring Quarter in time for the 
Honor Council to assume its duties which shall begin 
on May 1. Appointments will be made as needed to 
keep the Honor Council staffed to do business on a 
reasonably prompt basis. These appointments may 
constitute permanent or temporary replacements as 
the Honor Code Commission deems necessary. 

C. The Honor Council will elect a President and a 
Secretary from its membership. The President will 
preside at all hearings. The Secretary will maintain 
written notes on all proceedings and audiotape 
records of all testimony, and will maintain exhibits or 
copies of exhibits of evidence which by their nature 
may reasonably be maintained in the Council files. 

D. Constituency of the Honor Council during the summer 
term shall include all appointed members in at- 
tendance, and others as shall be appointed to mem- 
bership by the Honor Code Commission. 



VI. Procedures and Penalties Adopted by the Honor Council: 

The Honor Council shall formulate its own bylaws 
governing internal organization and procedure. Such 
bylaws must be consistent with the Honor Code. 

22 






A. Nine members, including the President and Secretary, 
will normally hear a case. A quorum shall consist of 
seven and may hear a case. 

B. Hearings shall be called by the Council President to be 
held on a date not less than three (3) nor more than ten 
(10) class days after notice to the accused as provided 
in Section IV-2. Exceptions to these time requirements 
may be granted. 

C. A two-thirds majority secret ballot vote is required to 
reach a finding of guilty. All other questions may be 
settled by a simple majority vote. 

D. Upon reaching a finding of guilty, the Council shall 
make a recommendation to the Dean of the College as 
to the administrative action it deems appropriate 
within the following limitations: 

1 . A minimum penalty shall be loss of assignment or test credit 
for the assignment or test for violations involving cheating 
as specified in Section II, subsections 1 , 2 and 3. Additional 
penalties such as reprimands, suspension, or others may be 
recommended for any aspects of Section II. 

2. Maximum penalty for a first offense of any type shall be 
suspension for a full calendar year. 

3. Maximum penalty for a second offense may be suspension 
for three years. 

E. Immediately following a hearing, the accused will be 

informed of the Council's finding, and its recom- 
mendation to the Dean of the College. If the finding is 
guilty, the accused will be informed that the Council 
may re-open the case with the consent of the accused 
for good cause, within a three week period. 

F. The Dean of the College will inform all involved per- 

sons in writing of the action he has taken in view of 
Council recommendations. The Council Secretary will 
post public notice of the Dean's action by case num- 
ber without identifying the accused. 

23 



VII. Appeals of Findings and Penalties: 

Should a student have cause to question the findings of the 
Council or the action of the Dean of the College or both, he 
has the right of appeal. The channels of appeal are as 
follows: 



Council findings and/or the administrative action of the 
Dean of the College may be appealed within five days 
by writing the President of the College. Further appeal 
procedures will conform to the appeal procedures of 
the College and of the Policies of the Board of Re- 
gents, University System of Georgia (a copy of these 
policies is available in the Library; see chapter on 
Students, section on appeals page 165. 1969 edition). 



VIM. Supervision of the Honor Council: 

As an institutional means of responding to reported in- 
fractions of the Honor Code, the Honor Council is ultimately 
responsible to the President of the College. 

Supervision of the Honor Council will be accomplished or- 
dinarily through the following individuals: 

A. Dean of Student Affairs 

In accordance with Article IV. Section F. of the 
College Statutes, the Dean of Student Affairs will 
provide general supervision of the Honor Council and 
will provide other guidance or services as directed by 
the President of the College. 

B. Advisor and Associate Advisor 

1. An advisor and an associate advisor to the Honor Council 
will be appointed by the President of the College. 

2. Ordinarily, the advisor will serve in that office for one year 
only and usually will be succeeded in that position by the 
associate advisor. 

24 



Therefore, after the initial appointments, only an associate 
advisor will ordinarily be appointed each year. The suc- 
cession of associate to the advisor position is deemed to 
occur on the last day of the Spring Quarter. 

In the event that for some reason the advisor is unable to 
complete his term, the associate advisor shall succeed to 
the office of advisor and another associate advisor shall be 
appointed by the above procedures. If. during the Summer 
Quarter, neither advisor is on campus, a temporary advisor 
will be appointed. 

3. Duties of the Advisor and the Associate Advisor: 

It shall be the duty of the advisor to consult with the Council 
and to offer advice to the President and members of the 
Council on substantive and procedural questions. The ad- 
visor, or the associate advisor in the event the advisor is 
unable to attend, shall be present at all meetings and 
hearings of the Council. The advisor may not vote nor may 
he participate directly in the conduct of hearings before the 
Council except through the President, or acting President, 
of the Council. The advisor should be governed at all times 
by the principle that a hearing before the Honor Council is 
primarily a matter of student responsibility. 

IX. Revision of the Honor Code will require confirmation by 
majority vote of those faculty and student body members 
voting.

STUDENT LIFE — 
INFORMATION 
AND POLICIES 




DR. J. V. ADAMS 
Dean of Students 



Student life at Armstrong State College, a multipurpose in- 
stitution operating in a metropolitan setting, is characterized by 
unique opportunities for learning and development. With all 
students living off campus and with all who are eighteen or 
older carrying legal responsibilities for themselves, Armstrong 
students encounter much more than an "ivory tower" existence. 
The complexities of such modern college life combined with the 
traditional challenges of the academic world present challenges 
calling for one's best intellectual efforts and for continued 
development of personal character and maturity. 

For this kind of college life, Armstrong provides some 
specialized services for students. The cooperative efforts of 
students, faculty and administration make possible a student life 
program giving students unusual opportunities in student self 
government and in developing programs and activities of in- 
terest to themselves. We invite every student to avail himself of 
the services and opportunities at the college. 



26 



STUDENT SERVICES 

COUNSELING 

The Counseling Office provides services designed to help 
students deal more effectively with both college experiences 
and events thereafter. 

Questions of selecting or changing a major, studying with 
results, resolving social or personal difficulties, planning for a 
realistic career, adjusting to college work are just some exam- 
ples of concerns to be discussed with a professionally trained 
counselor. Frequently information helpful in decision making 
can be gained from interest and personal preference in- 
ventories, aptitude, intelligence, or achievement tests. 

Often it is desirable to learn more about specific oc- 
cupations, graduate or professional schools. Current catalogs 
and pamphlets are gathered in the Counseling Office and a list 
of references is available. 

Academic advisement is coordinated in the office of the 
Dean of the College and is usually conducted by the department 
of the student's concentration. However, individual course ad- 
vising is available from the counselors to each student as 
needed, particularly to those who have not yet selected a major. 

Counseling services, assuring personal attention and con- 
fidentiality, are available to all students at no charge. Students 
are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Affairs in the 
Administration Building where the counseling service is 
located. An interview can be scheduled at your convenience. 

FINANCIAL AID 

All forms of financial aid are administered by the Director of 
Financial Aid in the Office of Student Affairs. Students in- 
terested in scholarships, assistantships, loans, part-time em- 
ployment, or work-study opportunities should make application 
in this office. Every effort will be made to assist students who 
desire education but who do not have sufficient resources to at- 
tend college. The college also employs a number of student 
assistants each year who work in various departments on the 
campus. 

27 



JOB PLACEMENT 

In cooperation with the Counseling and Financial Aid Ser- 
vices, the Office of Student Affairs assists students in locating 
both part-time and full-time employment. For post graduate em- 
ployment, the placement service arranges on campus job in- 
terviews and, at the request of a senior student, will set up a 
reference file on the student for future employment purposes. 

HOUSING 

The Office of Student Affairs assists students in locating 
housing accommodations. The office maintains an up to date 
listing of private rooms, apartments, and mobile home parks. 

HEALTH SERVICE 

The services of a Registered Nurse are available to 
students between the hours of 8:15 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on class 
days or registration days. The health clinic is located in 
Memorial Center Annex.

Student registrants should earn a minimum of forty-five (45) 
quarter hours each academic year in order to be eligible for a 
continued ll-S Student Deferment. 

VETERANS AFFAIRS 

Veteran affairs are handled in the Registrar's Office. 
Veterans and dependents of veterans should check in this office 
at the beginning of each quarter to make certain that their file is 
complete. The Certificate of Eligibility is an essential part of 
your file and should be brought directly to the Office of Ad- 
missions and Records. For full benefits, a veteran must enroll for 
at least twelve (12) quarter hours each quarter. 

SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS 

Students attending college under the Social Security Act 
must carry twelve (12) quarter hours each quarter in order to 
receive benefits. 

STUDENT INSURANCE 

A group health and accident insurance policy has been 
designed especially for Armstrong State College Students. The 
fee is only $20.00 for a full year's coverage. This insurance may 
be purchased at registration. For further information contact the 
Office of Student Affairs. 

LOST AND FOUND 

The Student Affairs Office in the Administration Building 
and the Office of the Director of Student Activities maintain a 
repository for lost and found articles. Any person finding a lost 
article on campus should turn it in to either of these two offices 
so that it may be claimed by the owner. 

29 



MAROON AND GOLD 

To keep students informed regarding college functions, the 
college publishes a news bulletin, the MAROON AND GOLD 
every Wednesday. This one-page bulletin contains announce- 
ments and general information relative to college and studen 
activities. Any student having information for the MAROON ANC 
GOLD may contact the Office of Public Information in the Ad- 
ministration Building. 




30 



PRESIDENTS LUNCHEONS 

In an effort to keep the line of communication open as well 
as to provide students with an opportunity to express their 
ideals and opinions, the President of Armstrong State College 
periodically invites students to a Luncheon. At this time, matters 
of common concern are discussed. 

DEAN'S ADVISORY COUNCIL 

The Dean's Advisory Council, initiated by the Dean of 
Student Affairs, gives students an opportunity to meet with 
various administrative officers of the college. The council 
serves to advise the administrative officers of programs and ac- 
tivities which relate to students and their welfare. Meetings are 
held once each month and are open to all students. 

MEMORIAL CENTER AND ANNEX 

Memorial College Center, commonly called the "New 
Student Center," is located on the South side of the Campus. 
The Center houses the cafeteria, the offices of Student Govern- 
ment, the Office of the Director of Student Activities and con- 
ference rooms. Vending machines with hot and cold sandwiches 
and drinks are available in Memorial Center Annex which is ad- 
jacent to the Center. The Annex also houses the Post Office, 
Health Clinic, and bookstore. 

Reservations for the use of conference rooms in the Student 
Center are made through the Office of the Director of Student 
Activities. Arrangements may be made with the cafeteria 
manager to have special dinners and affairs catered. Anyone 
who wishes to have announcements shown on the closed circuit 
television may do so in the Office of the Director of Student Ac- 
tivities. 

Card playing is prohibited in the cafeteria of the "New 
Student Center". Students wishing to play cards may do so in 
the Annex. 

ALL STUDENTS ARE ASKED TO CLEAN THEIR OWN

THAT CIGARETTES AND OTHER SMOKING MATERIALS BE 
EXTINGUISHED IN THE ASHTRAYS PROVIDED ON EACH 
TABLE. 



31 



STUDENT ACTIVITIES 



STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE 

The Student Activity Fee 
of $15.00 per quarter from 
each student enables students 
to enjoy a comprehensive pro- 
gram of outside class activi- 
ties. Payment of this fee en- 
titles students to free admis- 
sion to drama productions and 
to home athletic events. 
Students receive reduced ad- 
mission prices for dances and 
concerts. The INKWELL is 
distributed free weekly. Pay- 
ment of this fee for two quar- 
ters entitles the student to a 
copy of the college annual, 

THE GEECHEE. There is also a monthly film series with first 
movies shown. Summer students receive two free tickets to 
annual Luau.

the 



Disposition of student activity fees is determined by the 
Student Senate in consultation with the Dean of Student Affairs, 
the Director of Student Activities, and the Comptroller, and is 
subject to the approval of the Dean of Student Affairs and the 
President of the College. This disposition of funds is based on 
requests from various recognized organizations and com- 
mittees. The following guidelines are used by the senate to 
determine appropriations: 

For an organization to receive activity fees, one of the two 
following criteria must be met. EITHER: 

1 . The organization must exist purely to serve or represent the 
student body as a whole. Its programs and operations 
benefit the overall student body and participation in the 
organization must be open to all students. The organization 
must not have any racial, religious or ethnic ties which 
might discourage otherwise interested students from 
joining it. The organization cannot have as its primary aim 



32 



service to any special interest group, but must rather serve 
the entire student body. 

2. The organization must be presenting a program which 
satisfies the following three requirements: 

a. The program must be of general benefit to the student 

body and participation in the program must be open to 
all interested students. 

b. The program must be one which the sponsoring 

organization is uniquely able to present or at least one 
which the sponsoring organization is clearly better 
able to present than any other campus organization 
already being funded under criteria No. 1 above. 

c. The program must have sufficient value to warrant its 
funding when compared to other programs satisfying 
the other criteria explained above. 

If an organization requests funding for a program that 
satisfies the above three requirements then the Finance Com- 
mittee of the Senate recommends funding the program. Of 
course, the Finance Committee reserves the right to review any 
organization at any time in order to insure that the funded 
organization is complying with the guidelines above.

The Student Government Association 
of Armstrong State College is composed 
of all student body officers, the Student 
Senate, the Student Court, and the 
Honor Council representatives. These 
elected officials seek to express the will 
of the general student body. The college 
faculty and administration rely heavily 
upon this group in seeking the par- 
ticipation of the student body in matters 
that concern student welfare. The 
Student Government Office is located in 
Room 201 of the Student Center and is 
open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday 
through Friday. 

The President of the Student Govern-

ORGANIZATION POLICIES 

The following policy statement was approved by the 
Student Activities Committee in the Spring Quarter of 1972 and 
serves as one of College policies by which organizations 
operate. 

A. General Policies 

Student organizations at Armstrong State College exist as 
an integral part of the total educational program. Their general 
purpose is to contribute to the development and welfare of the 
students and to benefit the entire community. Student 
organizations are organized and managed by students and are 
subject to the regulations of the college. As an integral part of 
the college community, they have certain responsibilities in- 
cluding, adherence to the organization's announced purposes 
and sound business management. Basic democratic operational 
procedures are expected of all student organizations. 

Student organizations must have an advisor approved by 
the Student Activities Committee before they can function as 
recognized organizations of the college. The Director of 
Student Activities and the organization advisor are available to 
advise and assist organizations, but the final responsibility for 
performance rests with the members themselves. In addition to 
other policies and regulations, student organizations are 
responsible for complying with the following regulations: A. No 
student organization will be permitted to affiliate with any out- 
side group or organization without the approval of the Student 
Activities Committee and the President of Armstrong State 
College. B. All student organizations will be under the year- 
round supervision of the college whether the college is in 
session or not. C. Activities will be limited to the Armstrong 
State College community and their guests for both on and off 
campus events. 

I. SOCIAL REGULATIONS AND CONDUCT 

Events sponsored by the college or by college approved 
student groups using campus facilities must have at least one 
chaperone approved by the Director of Student Activities. In ad- 
dition, sponsoring organizations are responsible for making cer- 

53 



tain that the Student Code of Conduct is followed by individual 
participants for both on and off campus events. 

II. LOCATION 

a. The student organizations are encouraged to use college 
facilities for social functions. 

b. Permission to use the Memorial College Center or the 
Memorial College Center Annex is requested through the 
Office of the Director of Student Activities. Organizations 
are responsible for removing all decorations and signs 
relating to the activity as well as paying a $35.00 fee to 
cover the cost of cleaning the facility when the cafeteria is 
used. When other space in the College Center is used by an 
organization, care should be taken to leave the facility in 
good condition. 

c. Permission to use other campus facilities is made through 
the use of the Master Scheduling Calendar. (Contact the 
Registrars Office). 

III. FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES 

a. The responsibility for organizational funds not derived from 
student activity fees rests with the individual organizations. 
Each organization should plan to periodically audit its 
financial accounts. 

b. Organizations which derive operating funds from student 
activity fees must obtain a purchase order from the Director 
of Student Activities prior to withdrawing monies from their 
account. 

IV. Failure to abide by Armstrong State College policies and 
regulations may result in action by the Student Activities 
Committee leading to: 

a. Denial of recognition of the group as an organization, 
possibly demanding a forfeiture of charter. 

and/or 

b. Denial of use of college facilities, 
and/or 

c. Denial of social and other activities for a specified period. 

54 



When any of the above action is taken, the organization in- 
volved may appeal the decision, within 15 days to the Dean of 
Student Affairs. Further appeal may be made to the President of 
Armstrong State College in accordance with the Policies, Board 
of Regents, University System of Georgia, (copies available in 
library). 

B. Policies for becoming a recognized 
organization. 

I. PROCEDURE FOR SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION 

Tentative recognition is tended national professional and 
honorary organizations which have departmental approval. 
The Student Activities Committee then examines the by- 
laws of the local chapter for final approval. 

All other organizations seeking approval by the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee should adopt the following procedures: 

a. A finished draft of a proposed constitution and by-laws 
should be submitted to each of the eleven (11) members of 
the Committee. The draft should embody principles hereaf- 
ter set forth, should be in an acceptable form and should be 
free of grammatical, spelling and typographical errors. 



The draft of the constitution should be accompanied by a 
brief statement incorporating the following: 

1. The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of two 
individuals who may be contacted by members of the 
Committee and who can be responsible for answering 
questions about the proposed organization and its 
constitution. 

2. A brief assessment of the interest expressed by poten- 
tial members in the formation of the organization, i.e. 
how much support you think the organization, if ap- 
proved, will get from the student body. NOTE: This 
statement should not be made part of the constitution. 
It should be drafted on a separate page and attached 
to the individual copies of the constitution submitted. 

55 



II. THE FORM AND CONTENT OF THE CONSTITUTION 

In drawing up a constitution the applicants should bear in 
mind that the function of a constitution is to set forth the 
general ground rules for the conduct of the business of an 
organization. As it constitutes a fixed reference on per- 
manent file of these rules, it should be so explicit in those 
areas which it seeks to govern as to leave no doubt as to its 
meaning, e.g.. the titles and general duties of the 
organization's officers and the manner, time and 
procedures for conducting elections. On the other hand, the 
committee suggests that it would be unwise for the con- 
stitution to venture into legislative matters best left to the 
determination of easily alterable by-laws which can be 
passed by an enlarged and more representative mem- 
bership. 

a. The constitution should be framed in outline form. Because 
important changes in the policy and leadership of an 
organization frequently hinge on constitutional in- 
terpretation, it is strongly suggested that the constitution be 
framed in outline form for easy reference. For a convenient 
outline form the applicants should consult an acceptable 
authority such as the MLA Style Book or Kate Turabian's 
Manual for Writers of Term Papers. Theses and Disser- 
tations. The committee makes the following suggestions 
respecting form: 

1. Important and distinct topics such as "elections." 
"amendments to the constitution," etc.. should be 
designated by Roman Numerals and a topic heading 
(e.g.. IV Elections). 

2. Distinct sub-topic areas should be treated in separate 
paragraphs which may. but need not necessarily, be 
designated by a descending order of outline. 

3. The purposes of the committee in making these 
suggestions as form should not be thought of as 
academic arbitrariness. It is sometimes important to an 
organization to be able to make explicit and exact 
references to its constitutional document. The form we 
have suggested is designed to facilitate this kind of 
reference. 

56 



b. There are minimal requirements of the Student Activities 
Committee as to the content of submitted constitutions. 
Without presuming to proscribe the inclusion of other 
topics not listed or to dictate the general order of presen- 
tation of topics, the Student Activities Committee insists 
that the proposed constitution of any applicant organization 
include explicit provision for the following: 

1. Statement of the purpose of the organization. 

2. Provision for choosing an adviser. 

3. Qualifications for membership. Membership should be 
open to all qualified students with no exclusion 
because of race, creed, or national origin. 

4. Titles and duties of officers of the organization. 

5. Elections. In regard to elections, it is encumbent upon 
the proposed organization to make constitutional 
provision for the following: 

a. Free, open, democratic, and periodic election of officers. 

b. Provision for filling interim vacancies of offices. 

6. Funding and Financial Responsibility. 

a. The constitution must provide for a clear and distinct 
delegation of financial responsibility to one or more 
stipulated officers of the organization. 

b. When dues are to be assessed, the constitution must 
provide for the manner of assessment. 

c. The constitution must provide for an internal audit of 
the finances of the organization. This audit is not to be 
conducted exclusively by the Executive officers and 
should be presented at least annually for the con- 
sideration of its membership. 

57 



7. Meetings 

a. The constitution must provide for a minimum number 
of meetings annually for the membership. 

b. The constitution must provide suitable guarantees that 
the membership will be given advance notice as to the 
time and place for conducting general meetings. 

c. The constitution must provide a means for calling 
special meetings where the situation warrants and for 
notifying the general membership thereof. 

8. Quorum requirements for conducting business. 

9. The method of passing by-laws. 

10. Committees. 

11. Amendment of the constitution. 

III. RESPONSIBILITIES OF APPLICANTS IN MAKING 
A CONSTITUTIONAL PRESENTATION 

Responsibilities of the Student Activities Committee are 
such that it must confine its attention to the consideration 
of substantive matters. Consequently, the Committee can- 
not be expected to contribute in any way towards putting an 
organization's constitution in proper form. The entire bur- 
den of producing a constitution in acceptable form rests 
with the applicant organization. This means the con- 
stitution, before it will be considered by the Committee, 
must embody the provisions established by the Committee. 

FINAL RECOGNITION 

The Student Activities Committee meets with represen- 
tatives of each organization desiring recognition by the 
college. After examining the constitution and after con- 
sulting the organization, the Student Activities Committee 
votes as to whether the organization will be recognized. 
The President of the College has the authority to grant the 
final recognition to an organization.

POLICY ON STUDENT OFF-CAMPUS 
MEETING HOUSES 

The Student Activities Committee proposes the following 
policy in respect to the establishment and governance of off- 
campus housing of fraternities, sororities, and other student 
organizations: 

I. Conduct: The Purview of the Student Activities Committee 

Since the Committee recognizes college students as 
responsible citizens of their wider communities and as re- 
spected representatives of the College, it therefore expects 
their conduct in off-campus activities to comply with this trust. 
The Committee is thus loathe to frame a set of rules and 
regulations explicitly setting forth policy adequately en- 
compassed already by the laws of our nation, state, county, and 
city for the guidance of all citizens. Consequently, the Com- 
mittee feels the following statements, in respect to the conduct 
of student organizations in off-campus houses, should be suf- 
ficient. 

A. Alleged violations of the law; involvement in civil suit; 
or any action, which might be construed as violations 
of criminal statutes or which might be actionable in 
civil suit by the members of an organization while 
representing the organization in any capacity, shall 
constitute sufficient ground for the Committee to ac- 
tively intervene in order to ascertain for itself the facts 
of the case. In no event is such an intervention to be 
taken as a prejudgment of student wrongdoing by the 
Committee. Students should recognize, however, that 
any involvement of a College-sponsored organization 
in the criminal or civil courts, or any action that might 
lead to such a situation, will inevitably reflect on the 
reputation and on the policies of the College. In such 
event, the College is, ipso facto, an interested party. 

B. Officers or members of an organization appearing 
before the Student Activities Committee, or any duly 
constituted faculty or administrative body of the 
College, to respond to allegations of wrongdoing 
which, in the event of an affirmative finding, might 

59 



constitute grounds for disciplinary action shall have 
secured to them those procedural guarantees 
promulgated by the College for the governance of 
College bodies investigating the wrongdoing of in- 
dividual college students. 

Conduct: The Responsibilities of College-Affiliated 
Organizations Having Off-Campus Houses 



Applicant organizations will recognize the time honored 
principle that the obverse side of freedom is responsibility. We 
expect members of these organizations to act as responsible 
citizens. For the preservation of their good citizen standing, the 
Committee delegates first and primary responsibility to the 
organizations themselves. To this end we promulgate the 
following guidelines: 



A. Applicant organizations must show evidence to the 
Committee that they have established adequate 
machinery for dealing with possible internal 
disciplinary problems. 

B. Officers and members of organizations have the obli- 
gation to bring to the attention of the relevant College 
officials any situations which might seriously compro- 
mise the good reputation of the organization and/or 
the College. Students are asked to exercise sound 
judgment in recognizing for themselves when situa- 
tions which may develop are of such a serious nature 
that they cannot be adjudicated properly within the 
mechanisms of the organization itself. 

C. The faculty sponsor or an adult approved by the Office 
of Student Affairs shall be present at all meetings and 
social functions of the organization. When social func- 
tions are open to the student body, alumni, etc., the 
organization will consult with the Office of Student Af- 
fairs for advice on whether supervision by police of- 
ficers is necessary. 

D. Hazing, for any reason, shall be prohibited as an 
aspect of organization activity. 



60 



E. Organizations shall make available to the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee for permanent filing an updated 
copy of their full house rules. 

III. Financial Responsibility 

An applicant organization must demonstrate financial com- 
petence to meet the recurrent obligations of maintaining the 
premises they occupy. The organization must in addition show 
competence to meet a reasonable amount of emergency finan- 
cial obligations usually attendant on householding. To these 
ends the Committee promulgates the following guidelines: 

A. Competence to meet financial obligations cannot be 
projected on the basis of expected revenues from 
membership dues or other sources. In the opinion of 
the Committee the only feasible way such warranty of 
financial responsibility can be assured is by having an 
economically secure individual from the community, or 
a board made up of such individuals, assume respon- 
sibility for all of the organizations' obligations. 

B. It is expected that the financial affairs of organizations 
will be on a cash or, at most, a regular thirty day billing 
basis. Decisions by organizations to enter long-term 
credit obligations must be submitted to the Committee 
for approval. 

C. Organizations must have their off-campus premises 
fully and adequately insured for liability.

SOME GENERAL COLLEGE POLICIES 

STATEMENT 

ON DISRUPTIVE AND OBSTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR 

BOARD OF REGENTS 

UNIVERSITY SYSTEM OF GEORGIA 

Adopted October, 1968 

The Board of Regents of the University System reaffirms its 
policies to support fully freedom of expression by each member 
of the academic community and to preserve and protect the 
rights and freedom of its faculty members and students to 
engage in debate, discussion, peaceful and non-disruptive 
protest and dissent. The following statement relates specifically 
to the problem described below. It does not change or in any 
way infringe upon the Board's existing policies and practices in 
support of freedom of expression and action. Rather, it is con- 
sidered necessary to combat the ultimate effect of irresponsible 
disruptive and obstructive actions by students and faculty which 
tend to destroy academic freedom and the institutional struc- 
tures through which it operates. 

In recent years a new and serious problem has appeared on 
many college and university campuses in the Nation. Some 
students, faculty members, and others have on occasion 
engaged in demonstrations, sit-ins and other activities that have 
clearly and deliberately interfered with the regular and orderly 
operation of the institution concerned. Typically, these actions 
have been the physical occupation of a building or campus area 
for a protracted period of time or the use or display of verbal or 
written obscenities involving indecent or disorderly conduct. 

These actions have gone beyond all heretofore recognized 
bounds of meetings for discussion, persuasion, or even protest, 
in that: (1) acquiescence to demands of the demonstrators is the 
condition for dispersal, and (2) the reasonable and written direc- 
tions of institutional officials to disperse have been ignored. 
Such activities thus have become clearly recognizable as an ac- 
tion of force, operating outside all established channels on the 
campus, including that of intellectual debate and persuasion 
which, are at the very heart of education. 

62 






The Board of Regents is deeply concerned by this new 
problem. Under the Constitution of the State of Georgia, under 
all applicable court rulings, and in keeping with the tradition of 
higher education in the United States, the Board is ultimately 
responsible for the orderly operation of the several institutions 
of the University System and the preservation of academic 
freedom in these institutions. The Board cannot and will not 
divest itself of this responsibility. 

Of equal or even greater importance, such action of force 
as has been described above destroys the very essence of 
higher education. This essence is found in the unhampered 
freedom to study, investigate, write, speak, and debate on any 
aspect or issue of life. This freedom, which reaches its full 
flowering on college and university campuses, is an essential 
part of American democracy, comparable to the jury system of 
the electoral process. 

For these reasons and in order to respond directly and 
specifically to this new problem, the Board of Regents 
stipulates that any student, faculty member, administrator, or 
employee, acting individually or in concert with others, who 
clearly obstructs or disrupts, or attempts to obstruct or disrupt 
any teaching, research, administrative, disciplinary or public 
service activity, or any other activity authorized to be 
discharged or held on campus of the University System of 
Georgia is considered by the Board to have committed an act 
of gross irresponsibility and shall be subject to disciplinary 
procedures, possibly resulting in dismissal or termination of 
employment. 

The Board reaffirms its belief that all segments of the 
academic community are under a strong obligation and have a 
mutual responsibility to protect the campus community from 
disorderly, disruptive or obstructive actions which interfere with 
academic pursuits of teaching, learning, and other campus ac- 
tivities. 



63 



POLICY FOR OUTSIDE GUESTS AT MEETINGS 

Although the college encourages meetings, programs and 
activities by all college approved groups, it does have a respon- 
sibility to insure that public law and order will be maintained 
and that the policies of the Board of Regents will be observed. 
There is no absolute right to assemble or to make or hear a 
speech at any time or place regardless of the circumstances, 
content of speech, purpose of assembly or probable con- 
sequences of such meeting or speech, or to the issuance of in- 
vitations to outside speakers. Because it does have the respon- 
sibility to insure that public law and order will be maintained, 
and that the educational activities of the college will not be in- 
terrupted in a disruptive way, the college reserves the right 
to know of outside guests who appear on a program on the 
campus and to determine any special arrangements or ac- 
commodations which might be required. 

Therefore, the issuance of invitations to outside speakers to 
use the facilities of the campus to speak to campus groups shall 
be accomplished within the following manner and as set forth 
herein: 

a. A request to invite an outside speaker will be considered 
only when made by a college recognized student or faculty 
group, such recognition having been authorized by the 
President of the College upon the recommendation of the 
proper committee or authority. 

b. No invitation by such organized groups shall be issued 
to an outside speaker without prior written concurrence by the 
President or the Dean of Student Affairs. (See paragraph (h) for 
grievance procedure if concurrence is denied.) 

c. Any speaker request shall be made in writing by an of- 
ficer of the student or faculty organization desiring to sponsor 
the proposed speaker, not later than ten calendar days prior to 
the date of the proposed speaking engagement. This request 
shall contain the name of the sponsoring organization, the 
proposed date, time and location of the meeting, the expected 
size of the audience and the topic of speech. Any request not 
acted upon by the President or the Dean of Student Affairs 
within four working days after submission shall be deemed 
granted. 



64 



d. Where the request for an outside speaker is granted, and 
the speaker accepts the invitation, the sponsoring organization 
shall inform the President or the Dean of Student Affairs in 
writing immediately of such acceptance. 

e. In the invitation to, or the advertisement or announce- 
ment of, guest speakers, it should be made clear to the aca- 
demic and larger community that sponsorship does not 
necessarily imply approval or endorsement, either by the spon- 
soring group or by Armstrong State College. 

The approval of the use of institutional facilities by the 
college does not necessarily imply that the college or the Board 
of Regents of the University System of Georgia approve or are in 
agreement with any of the avocations, policies or proposals 
espoused therein. 

f. Where he considers it to be in the best interest of the 
college, the President or the Dean of Student Affairs may re- 
quire that any meeting be closed to all persons other than the 
faculty, staff or students of the Armstrong State College. 

g. It shall be the responsibility of the sponsoring group to 
make the proper reservation through the Master Calendar Ser- 
vice in the Registrar's office for use on a particular date of any 
facility when an outside speaker is involved. The President or 
the Dean of Student Affairs may, when he considers it to be in 
the best interest of the college, require that the meeting be held 
in a specifically designated part of the campus. Normally this 
would be the area west of the Library and south of the Student 
Center, such area having been designated for this by the 
President of the College upon the recommendation of the 
faculty and the student government. 

h. Where the request for an outside speaker is denied, any 
sponsoring organization thereby aggrieved shall, upon written 
application to the President or the Dean of Student Affairs, ob- 
tain a hearing within two days following the filing of such ap- 
peal. The Hearing Committee shall consist of the Student Ac- 
tivities Committee, augmented by the Dean of the College and 
the President of the Student Body. Any sponsoring organization 
aggrieved by the action of the Hearing Committee shall follow 
the appeals provisions as outlined in the policies of the Board of 

65 



Regents of the University System of Georgia. 

It is the policy of the college that the freedoms of speech 
and assembly guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amend- 
ments to the United States Constitution shall be enjoyed by the 
students and faculty of Armstrong State College as respects the 
opportunity to hear off-campus or outside speakers on the cam- 
pus. It is not the policy of the college to curtail free discussion 
of subjects of either controversial or non-controversial nature. 
The above regulations are set forth to protect the college, the 
students and the faculty, and to insure the basic freedoms of 
speech and assembly. 



POLICY FOR USE OF ARMSTRONG STATE 
COLLEGE CAMPUS OR FACILITIES 

Armstrong State College is in existence for the purpose of 
providing a place and climate for the orderly process of learn- 
ing. Therefore, the following, which conforms to the policy of 
the University System of Georgia relative to the use of cam- 
puses, constitutes Armstrong State College's policy for the use 
of the facilities and/or campus by students or student groups. 

I. General Policies 

A. Armstrong State College is state property and is 
thereby open to any citizen desiring to visit. The con- 
duct of visitors is expected to conform with regular 
college policies. 

B. Approved and recognized college student and faculty 
organizations may promote any program with any 
featured speaker provided the program is approved by 
the institution in accordance with stated college 
policy. (See POLICY REGARDING OUTSIDE GUESTS 
AT MEETINGS). 

C. The facilities and campus may not be used by outside 
groups and non-student groups except in conjunction 

66 



with item B above and Section II below (Coordination, 
Reservation and Rental of Facilities). 

D. No activity will be permitted which interferes with the 
normal and orderly educational functions of this 
college. 

II. Coordination, Reservation, and Rental of Facilities. 



Section A - INTRODUCTION 

1. Purpose: This policy has a threefold purpose: (1) To 
provide an administrative structure through which use of 
college facilities can be done with ease, effectiveness, and with 
maximum efficiency, (2) To provide a complete and accurate 
record of such use of facilities so that required utilization 
reports can be effected with ease and accuracy, and (3) To 
provide a delivery system of special services (food, audiovisual, 
staging, etc.) needed by certain groups meeting on campus. 

2. College Users: Priorities for use of all college facilities 
shall be given to college sponsored programs and activities as 
follows: (1) Instructional activities (both regular and non- 
degree), (2) Student activities, and (3) Faculty and staff activities 
(not directly related to instruction). In order to avoid conflicts 
and to insure that utilization of college facilities is done ac- 
cording to these priorities, requests for use of all college 
facilities must be processed through the Coordinator of 
Facilities located in the Division of Community Services. Any 
changes in user assigned space must be coordinated with this 
office in order to eliminate conflicts. Since coordination of 
facility usage is not presently budgeted, all college groups 
using these facilities are expected to assist in the support of 
these activities according to the schedule of User Categories 
and Charges given in Section B. 

3. Community Users: As a tax supported unit of the Univer- 
sity System of Georgia, Armstrong State College accepts a 
responsibility of making available to community residents its full 
resources, including appropriate use of its physical facilities. 
Since some use of college facilities by community groups are so 
akin to college purposes and objectives as to make such use a 

67 



part of the public service program of the college, only a small 
charge for the use of college facilities by these groups will be 
made, (See Section B, Category II). Other community groups 
should be permitted the use of the college facilities since such 
usage would make available to the community events that might 
not otherwise be available. These groups, however, should be 
expected to pay a larger share of the support of the use of 
facilities to a schedule of regular charges, (See Section B, 
Category III). 

Section B - USER CATEGORIES AND CHARGES 

1. Category I - No Charge 

1. Regularly scheduled classes

good of the College. 

70 



Section D - PROCEDURES 

1. All requests for use of college facilities will be made 
through the Coordinator of Facilities located in the Division of 
Community Services. A "Request for Use of Facilities" form will 
be used for reserving college facilities for all functions except 
for regularly scheduled classes. Department heads scheduling 
classroom/lab utilization will simply submit a copy of the quar- 
terly Registrar's Schedule of Classes form. All requests for use 
of facilities will be confirmed in writing. 

2. The Coordinator of Facilities will process the requests 
for use of facilities by clearing the requested use of facilities 
with the appropriate persons and by having such usage entered 
on the College Activities Calendar and by notifying the ap- 
propriate personnel. If the event requires special arrangements, 
these will be completed by the Coordinator prior to entry of the 
event on the college calendar. 

3. The Coordinator of Facilities, upon arranging for the 
facilities and services requested, will forward to the requesting 
group a Permit to Use Campus Facilities form with the ap- 
propriate conditions and agreements entered thereon. Copies of 
this form will be forwarded to the appropriate persons on cam- 
pus. 

4. Invoices for appropriate costs by all campus units 
providing requested services according to the fee schedules 
established in this policy will be received by the Coordinator of 
Facilities who will then prepare an event cost budget which will 
be submitted to the Business Office for disbursement of funds. 

5. Non-college organizations will be required to pay all fees 
and deposit in advance. 

STUDENT CONDUCT 

The conduct of students on the campus, at college spon- 
sored affairs or when representing the college in any capacity, 
must meet standards of behavior in compliance with the Code of 
Conduct of Armstrong State College and the Regents of the 
University System of Georgia. 

71 



STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT 

STUDENT CONDUCT PROGRAM 

ARMSTRONG STATE COLLEGE 

(As Approved By The Board of Regents, June 1969) 

I. THE CODE OF STUDENT CONDUCT 

A. General Policies 



1. The College is dedicated not only to learning and the 
advancement of knowledge, but also to the develop- 
ment of ethically sensitive and responsible persons. It 
seeks to achieve these goals through a sound 
educational program and policies governing student 
conduct that encourage independence and maturity. 

2. The College distinguishes its responsibility for student 
conduct from the control functions of the community. 
When a student has been apprehended for the 
violation of a law of the community, the state, or the 
nation, the College will not request or agree to special 
consideration for the student because of his status as 
a student. The College will cooperate, however, with 
law enforcement agencies, and with other agencies in 
any program for the rehabilitation of the student. 

3. The College may apply sanctions or take other appro- 
priate action only when student conduct directly and 
significantly interferes with the College's (a) primary 
educational responsibility or ensuring the opportunity 
of all members of the College community to attain 
their educational objectives, or (b) subsidiary respon- 
sibilities of protecting property, keeping records, 
providing services, and sponsoring non-classroom ac- 
tivities such as lectures, concerts, athletic events, and 
social functions. 

4. Students are subject to the separate provisions of the 
Armstrong State College Honor Code, violations of 
which are not set forth in Section C below. The first 
hearing on violations of the Honor Code shall be 

72 



before the Honor Council in accordance with the 
provisions of the Honor Code. 

5. Procedural fairness is basic to the proper enforcement 
of all College rules. In particular, no disciplinary sanc- 
tion as serious as expulsion, suspension, disciplinary 
probation, or entry of an adverse notation on any per- 
manent record available to persons outside the 
College shall be imposed unless the student has been 
notified in writing of the charges against him and has 
had an opportunity (a) to appear alone or with any 
other persons to advise and assist him before an ap- 
propriate committee, court, or official, (b) to know the 
nature and source of the evidence against him and to 
present evidence in his own behalf, and (c) to have his 
case reviewed in accordance with Part II, Paragraph C 
below. 

6. Students shall have an opportunity to participate in the 
formation of all policies and rules pertaining to student 
conduct and in the enforcement of all such rules. 

7. No disciplinary action shall be imposed on a student 
by or in the name of the College except in accordance 
with this Code or the Honor Code, whichever shall ap- 
ply. 

B. Sanctions 

1. Sanctions which may be imposed for the commission 
of college offenses shall include the following: 

(a) Expulsion from the College. Expulsion means per- 
manent separation from the College. 

(b) Suspension from the College for a definite or in- 

definite period of time. Suspension means invol- 
untary disenrollment and/or withdrawal of the 
privilege of enrollment. 

(c) Disciplinary probation with or without loss of 

designated privileges for a definite period of 
time. The violation of the terms of the disciplinary 

73 



probation or the infraction of any college rule 
during the period of disciplinary probation may 
be grounds for suspension or expulsion from the 
College. The parents of any student under 21 
years of age who is placed on disciplinary 
probation, suspended, or expelled shall be 
notified. 

(d) Social probation with loss of such specified privi- 

leges as may be consistent with the offense com- 
mitted. The loss of privileges shall be for a 
definite period of time. 

(e) Reprimand. A written rebuke, of which a record 
will be retained in the student's file so long as he 
remains at Armstrong, but which will not be for- 
warded to any other college or employer. 

(f) Admonition and warning. 

2. The sanctions of expulsion or suspension ordinarily 
shall be imposed only upon the recommendation of the 
Student Court. In extraordinary circumstances, where 
gross violations of conduct rules are disrupting the 
proper functioning of the College, students may be 
summarily suspended by the Dean of Student Affairs. 
Appeal from such suspension may be made in ac- 
cordance with Part II, Paragraph C, Appeal Proce- 
dures, below. 

C. Violations 

1. Expulsion or suspension from the College or any 
lesser sanction may result from the commission of any 
of the following offenses: 

(a) Conduct which is in violation of federal, state or 

local laws which was committed on campus, or 
which involves college property or which is 
against members of the College community 
acting in their official capacity. 

(b) Violations of published Policies of the Board of 

Regents of the University System of Georgia, a 
copy which shall be on reserve in the library. 

74 






(c) Participation in any hazing-like act, physical or 

mental, perpetrated for the purpose of submitting 
a student to physical pain, discomfort, indignity, 
or humiliation at any time or any place. 

(d) Forgery, alteration, destruction, or misuse of 

college documents, records, or identification 
cards, or furnishing false information to the 
College with intent to deceive, or possession of 
fire arms. 

(e) Reproducing or unauthorized possession of keys 

to any college facility or entering any college 
facility without proper authority. 

(f) Malicious destruction, damage, or misuse of 

college property, including library materials, or of 
private property on the campus. 

(g) Direct disobedience of orders given by a college 

official who has identified himself and is acting 
within his authority. This would include failure to 
present, within a reasonable amount of time, the 
College identification card. 

(h) Two or more (or the repetition of) offenses listed 
in paragraph below. 

2. Disciplinary probation or any lesser sanction may re- 
sult from the commission of any of the following of- 
fenses: 

(a) Failure to comply with Georgia law concerning the use, 

possession, or consumption of alcoholic beverages. 
This would include all on-campus activities and those 
off-campus activities paid for out of Student Activity 
Funds. 

(b) Disorderly conduct on campus or at off-campus affairs 

financed by Student Activity Funds. 

(c) Violation of any college rule, subsequently promul- 
gated by the College for the infraction of which sanc- 

75 



tions may be imposed under this Code. All such rules 
shall be in writing and shall be published and posted 
on the official College Bulletin Board in such manner 
as to furnish adequate notice of their contents to 
students affected by such rules. The College's failure 
to comply with this requirement shall be a complete 
defense to any charge of violation of a rule of which 
the student has no actual knowledge. A student's 
failure to familiarize himself with published rules shall 
not be an adequate defense. 

D. Group Offenses 

1. Living organizations, societies, clubs, and similar 
organized groups are responsible for compliance with 
college regulations. Upon satisfactory proof that the 
group has encouraged, or did not take reasonable 
steps as a group, to prevent violations of college regu- 
lations, the group may be subjected to permanent or 
temporary suspension of charter, social probation, de- 
nial of use of college facilities, or other like sanctions. 

2. The determination that a group is liable to sanction un- 
der the foregoing Section 1, and of the sanction to be 
imposed, shall be made by the Student Activities Com- 
mittee at a hearing held for that purpose. The 
president or principal officer of the group must be 
given reasonable notice of the time and place of said 
hearing and of the nature of the charges. He or any 
other member of the group is entitled to attend and be 
heard at the hearing. 

3. Nothing herein authorizes the imposition of individual 
sanctions on any person other than in accordance with 
the Code of Student Conduct. 

E. The Student Conduct Committee 

1. The Student Conduct Committee shall be responsible 
to the faculty and the President of the College for 
recommending policies relating to student conduct,

members, one representing each class. The faculty 
members shall be appointed by the faculty in ac- 
cordance with the faculty by-laws. The student mem- 
bers shall be appointed by the Student Senate. Each

groups, and tribunals responsible for student conduct. 

4. All regulations or rules relating to student conduct that 
are proposed by any college official, committee or 
student group, and for which sanctions may be im- 
posed in the name of the College, must be submitted 
to the Committee for consideration and review prior to

F. The Student Court 

1. The Student Court shall be composed of eight

II. The Administration of the Code 

A. General Procedures 

1. All violations of the Code will be immediately reported 
to the Dean of Student Affairs by any person who has 
knowledge of the commission of any such violation. 

2. The Dean of Student Affairs shall insure that the best 
interests of any offending student are served, re- 
gardless of whether disciplinary action is taken, by 
making sure that the student is advised of his rights. 

78 



Where sufficient evidence exists that a violation of law 
has occurred, the Dean of Student Affairs shall refer 
the case and transmit the evidence to the appropriate 
law enforcement agency. 

Where the evidence establishes to his satisfaction that 
a college offense has occurred, the Dean of Student 
Affairs shall advise the student of the charges against 
him and ask the student if he prefers to have the of- 
fense handled administratively or to have the case 
referred to the Student Court for hearing. If the student 
prefers that the case not be referred to the Student 
Court, he will be required to sign a waiver of his right 
to a hearing before the Student Court. 



B. The Student Court 

1. Any student whose case is referred to the Student 
Court shall be notified of such referral in writing by the 
Dean of Student Affairs at least three days before the 
hearing and shall be apprised in the notice of the 
charges against him. During the hearing the student 
shall have the opportunity (a) to appear in person 
and/or with counsel, (b) to know the evidence against 
him, and (c) to call witnesses and to present evidence 
and argument in his behalf. In the resolution of factual 
disputes, the court will request the testimony of wit- 
nesses and otherwise seek the best evidence ob- 
tainable. 

2. The Court shall be convened by its presiding officer to 
consider the evidence of a reported violation as soon 
as reasonably possible after the accused has had the 
required three days notice. 

3. A record shall be made of each witness's testimony. 

4. Immediately upon conclusion of a hearing, the student 
concerned shall be notified of the findings and recom- 
mendation that the court will make to the President of 
the College and of his right to appeal. 

79 



C. Appeal Procedures 

1. The student shall have the right to appeal from any 
sanction. 

2. The Student Court when initially recommending a 
sanction shall advise the student, in writing, of his 
right to appeal to the President of the College. The 
student shall have five days from the receipt of such 
advice to render his appeal to the President, who shall 
refer it to a committee in accordance with Board of 
Regents' Policy. 

3. Appeal from decisions of the President of the College 
may be made to the Board of Regents of the University 
System under the Board of Regents' stated Policy.

of a quarter should have this vehicle registered im- 
mediately. 

4. Student vehicle operators are authorized to use 
student decals for their vehicles. Employees are 
authorized to use faculty decals for their vehicles. 

5. Senior decals are no longer valid, but Special Parking 
decals are available on a limited basis for individuals 
with special hardships. These decals permit the 
operator to park in faculty, student or visitor spaces. 
Contact the Office of Student Affairs for further in- 
formation. 

B. Non-Decal Vehicle Regulations. 

1. Visitors should park in visitor spaces or in the back 
parking lot area designated for non-decal vehicles. 

2. A non-decal vehicle parked in areas other than visitor 
or the non-decal area is subject to tow-away or to a 
special fine. For the first such violation of a non-decal 
vehicle the operator may be assessed the special fine 
of $8.00 (subsequent violations will be $12.00). 

3. If a student or employee must drive a vehicle that has 
not been registered and given a decal, then that 
vehicle should be parked in the non-decal area of the 
back parking lot. 

III. Parking Regulations 

A. Parking spaces marked Department Head, Student, etc., are 
reserved for vehicles with the appropriate decal. 

B. Visitor spaces are reserved for vehicles without decals 
which are operated by visitors. 

C. General Parking Regulations: 

1. Parking is not permitted at the red curbs. These areas 
are fire lanes and must be kept clear. Any vehicle 



81 



parked in red curb areas is subject to tow-away or to a 
special fine of $8.00 (subsequent violations will be 
$12.00). 

2. Vehicles are not permitted on the grass or sidewalks. 

3. Vehicles may not be backed into parking spaces.

or on campus grounds will be issued a ticket which 
carries a special fine of $6.00. Repeat violations of the 
same type will be treated according to the incremental 
system of fines described in section IV, starting with 
the third increment. 

8. Reserved parking spaces are on reserved status 
during the hours between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on 
College working days, (Monday through Friday). 
Special signs indicate other hours for reserved spaces 
such as the faculty day-night reserved spaces. 

D. Permission may be granted by College authorities to except 
vehicles and operators from the above stated requirements 
where circumstances warrant, such as a need to load and 
unload vehicles. A vehicle operator should obtain per- 
mission for the exception before operating a vehicle in such 
an unauthorized manner. 

IV. Traffic Enforcement 

A. Violators of regulations will be issued tickets by the 
Security Department. All fines must be paid to the Security 
Office in the Plant Operations building within 7 (seven) days 

82

An incremental system of fines on a quarterly basis is used. 
The first ticket is $2.00, the second (of a like violation) 
$4.00, the third $8.00, and subsequent tickets $12.00. 

Fines are assessed to vehicle operators, but the person in 
whose name a vehicle is registered is held responsible for 
proper operation of the vehicle on campus and is held 
equally responsible for payment of any fines regardless of 
who operates the vehicle on campus unless the vehicle is 
stolen. 

Students who have unpaid fines or charges at the end of the 
quarter will not be allowed to register for the succeeding 
quarter and the grades for the quarter in which the 
violation(s) occurred will be withheld. Transcripts will not 
be released from the Registrars Office until all accounts 
have been cleared. 

Vehicle Towing Policy. Vehicles involved in certain offenses 
(as specified elsewhere) and vehicles without decals which 
are parked in unauthorized spaces on campus streets or 
grounds are subject to being towed to the Plant Security Of- 
fice. A ten dollar towing charge plus a two dollar fine will be 
assessed the vehicle operator. Vehicles parked in the large 
parking lot parking spaces are not subject to tow away for 
parking violations. 



V. Traffic Ticket Appeal 

A. A traffic committee composed of students, faculty and staff 
is provided for persons wishing to appeal traffic tickets. A 
ticket must be appealed within 7 (seven) days of the 
violation. Traffic Committee meets in the Student Govern- 
ment Office - Room 201 - in the Memorial College Center at 
posted times. If a student is unable to attend the Traffic 
Committee, he may pick up a traffic appeal form from the 
Director of Student Activities office or from the Security of- 
fice. When this form is completed it should be placed in the 
mail drop in the Student Center Annex and should be 
marked "Traffic Court". 



83 



If a person's appeal is turned down, he has three class days 
from the day of the decision to pay the fine or to make fur- 
ther appeal. 

B. If a person's appeal is rejected by the traffic court and the 
person doesn't agree with the decision, he may take one of 
the following steps: 

1. Students and visitors may appeal to the Dean of 
Student Affairs and thereafter to the President of the 
College. 

2. Employees may appeal to the administrator under 
whose supervision they work. The administrators who 
receive these employee appeals are: Dean of the 
College, Dean of Student Affairs, Dean of Community 
Services, and Comptroller. 

*Special Note to Department Heads, program sponsors or other 
people having visitors on campus! Please advise your visiting 
guests of the College vehicle regulations and please assist 
them in locating proper parking spaces. If you need assistance 
with locating parking spaces for visitors, contact Mr. Dick Baker 
at Plant Security (extension 226), a day in advance if at all 
possible. 

When in doubt, park in the large parking lot at the rear of the 
campus.

MISCELLANEOUS REGULATIONS 

TELEPHONE REGULATIONS 

Students are called to the telephone only in emergencies. 
Office telephones are not to be used by students. Public tele- 
phones are provided in the Student Union, and the classroom 
buildings. 

ACCIDENTS 

In the event an Armstrong student becomes ill or involved in 
an accident while on campus, the faculty member teaching the 
class in which the accident occurs or the first person on the 
scene should proceed as follows: 

1. Call the switchboard and report the illness or accident 
giving the location on campus. The operator will then 
notify the Campus Nurse and the Office of Student Affairs.

that the person is not moved, and keep him as comfortable 
as possible until the nurse arrives. 

3. When the nurse arrives, the following steps will be

emergency treatment. 

b. The switchboard will be contacted if an am- 
bulance is needed.

dividual to the hospital if necessary. 

d. The Office of Student Affairs will attempt to notify 
the parents of the injured or ill student. 

DRESS 

The attire preferred by any given student reflects an effort 
to satisfy a variety of physical and psychological needs. The 
college leaves the matter to the discretion of the student in the 
belief that he will exercise this prerogative wisely and in good 
taste.
